Prize Philanthropy: Benefits, Challenges, and Winning Approaches

Host Organization: Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors


Prize philanthropy has become an increasingly popular tool for achieving strategic philanthropy. Philanthropic competitions can be a powerful way to achieve transformative change, spur innovation, raise awareness of important issues, propel topic and field leaders into the spotlight, and provide new access points for traditionally overlooked solution-providers. However, competitions also pose several challenges that need to be considered alongside the benefits.
Please join us for an insightful exploration of how philanthropic leaders are leveraging prize philanthropy. The discussion will also touch on how prize philanthropy contributes to transparency and equity, as well as how donors grapple with potential challenges of this approach.
Presenters include:
  • Adam Ganuza, Program Officer, Knight Foundation
  • Filipa Saldanha, Deputy Director, Sustainable Development Programme, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation
  • Jeff Ubois, Vice President, Knowledge Management, Lever for Change
  • Renee Karibi-Whyte, Vice President, Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors (Moderator)
This webinar will build on the guidance contained in RPA's newest publication, Prize Philanthropy: Benefits, Challenges, and Winning Approaches.
