Lipman Family Prize 2022

The Barry & Marie Lipman Family Prize at the University of Pennsylvania is an annual global prize given to one organization that celebrates leadership and innovation in the social sector with an emphasis on impact and transferability of practices.

The Lipman Family Prize recognizes and supports these organizations — providing a service to the broader social sector by connecting organizations across service areas to the broader Penn community. The University of Pennsylvania is home to a dynamic, diverse community of faculty, staff, administration, students and alumni committed to drawing on their knowledge and expertise to partner across disciplines and geographies to improve the world.

  • A $250,000 unrestricted cash award for the winning organization and $100,000 for each of the two other honorees.
  • An ongoing partnership with the University dedicated to knowledge sharing and support of the organization. This includes promotion of their work and accomplishments in the Lipman Prize network of organizations, Penn faculty and alumni, and social impact funders.
  • Access to tuition-free executive education programs at the Wharton Executive Education and the Center for Social Impact Strategy, valued at approximately $15,000.
  • The exclusive Lipman Nonprofit Leadership Scholarship, given in partnership with the University’s School of Public Policy and Practice, valued at approximately $10,000.

Eligibilities

The Lipman Family Prize is targeted toward organizations addressing social and economic issues that are usually addressed by the Nonprofit/NGO/Civil Society sector. As a result, the majority of organizations that apply are considered “nonprofit” organizations. We expect that applicant organizations meet the following criteria in order to apply for the Prize:

  • Registered as a nonprofit in the United States or hold an equivalent incorporation status in their home country.
  • In operation for three years or more.
  • Annual operating budget of $500,000 USD or more in the last and current fiscal year.
  • No direct lobbying expenses to influence legislation or elections, programs with religious content, or programs that discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, age or disability.

Organizations may apply for the work of the entire organization, or for that of a specific program.  If submitting a program application, the program must meet the same basic criteria as an organizational applicant:

  • The program is part of an organization that is registered as a nonprofit in the United States or holds an equivalent incorporation status in their home country.
  • The program has been in operation for three years or more.
  • Annual program operating budget of $500,000 USD or more in the last and current fiscal year.
  • No direct lobbying expenses to influence legislation or elections, programs with religious content, or programs that discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, age or disability.

They request that organizations and their programs that do not meet these criteria refrain from applying. Any application not meeting these criteria will not be considered.

Eligible Regions: Open for All
