Eligibility Criteria

  • They encourage organizations from around the globe to apply.
  • They look for organizations that have a proven effective service model and capacity for growth.
  • This Prize brings its work to a larger audience, attracts new potential donors, and provides resources that will help scale the work or improve organizational sustainability.
  • 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. They 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.
    • No funding is directed towards individuals, 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.
    • No program funding is directed towards individuals, 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.
