Charles Bronfman Prize invites nominations

Founded in 2004, the Charles Bronfman Prize is an award of $100,000 presented to a humanitarian under the age of 50 whose innovative work, fueled by their Jewish values, has significantly improved the world.

To recognize dynamic leaders whose innovation and impact serve as inspiration for the next generation, the prize recognizes young humanitarians whose work is grounded in their Jewish values and is of universal benefit to all people.

To that end, the Charles Bronfman Prize invites nominations for individuals in all areas of humanitarian work across a broad spectrum of disciplines. Past recipients have distinguished themselves through their work in education, human rights, criminal justice, the environment, and more. The prize seeks nominees who are next-generation leaders who have a vision for change that will better the world in a meaningful way, have created a mechanism for acting on their vision in ways that deliver measurable results, and have exhibited innovation, leadership, and impact in their chosen field.

Nominees must self-identify as Jewish, espousing Jewish values and demonstrating universal regard for humanity to inspire and serve as a model for future generations. While most nominees have pursued social impact through nonprofit organizations, some have used other creative vehicles of change, such as B Corporations or their work.

The Charles Bronfman Prize encourages nominators to collaborate with their nominees to present a strong, well-informed nomination.

To be eligible, nominees must be individuals or teams, not organizations, and must not have reached their 50th birthday by the close of the nomination period.

Deadline: August 17, 2022 (Nominations)
