For developing philanthropy for progressive social change in emerging market countries
The Olga Alexeeva Memorial Prize of £5,000 is for an individual who has demonstrated remarkable leadership, creativity and results in developing philanthropy for progressive social change in an emerging market country or countries. The prize will be for the individual winner to use at their discretion.
This prize was established in memory of Olga Alexeeva, founder of Philanthropy Bridge Foundation, by former PFB trustees in honour of her memory and beliefs. The £5,000 prize is awarded annually.
Alliance will be organizing the prize in association with WINGS and the Global Fund for Community Foundations. The aim of this collaboration is to broaden the reach of the prize. Working through their members and networks, we hope they will be able to help us to identify a diverse group of candidates from a greater range of countries.
Nominations for the prize should be submitted by one main ‘nominator’ and seconded by another person. The closing date for applications is 18 May 2016.
