John W. Gardner Leadership Award
Independent Sector: The John W. Gardner Leadership Award
The John W. Gardner Leadership Award honors visionaries who have empowered constituencies, strengthened participation, and inspired movements. Award recipients are builders — people who, quite apart from personal achievements, have raised the capacity of others to advance the common good. Their leadership has either had national or international impact or, if at the regional level, has attracted wide recognition and imitation. Maximum award: $10,000. Eligibility: Gardner Award recipients may be of any age and be the creators of needed institutions or advocacy that changes public opinion and whose work has transformed their chosen field and has served as a role model to other fields. Deadline: January 29, 2010.
