Conrad N. Hilton Foundation Accepting Applications for 2022 Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize

The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation’s $2.5 million Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize is the largest annual humanitarian award presented to a nonprofit organization found to have made extraordinary contributions toward alleviating human suffering. The prize is not only intended to recognize and advance the efforts of the recipient organization but also to call attention to the worldwide need for humanitarian aid and encourage others to expand their support.

Nominees must be established, nongovernmental, publicly supported charitable organizations (not an individual) with tax-exempt status under the Internal Revenue Code (or the equivalent for international organizations whose nominees will be contacted by the foundation for appropriate documentation); have been legally established for at least five years and have audited financial statements for at least five years; and have expenditures greater than $750,000 in their most recent audited fiscal year of operation. (It is strongly encouraged that if a nominee has multiple branch offices, the umbrella organization be the nominee.)

To be eligible to nominate an organization, the nominator should have direct knowledge of the nominated organization’s work and not be an officer or employee of (or any other individual receiving remuneration for his or her services from) the nominated organization; a founder or family member of an officer or employee of the nominated organization; a Conrad N. Hilton Foundation employee, board member, prize juror, or a family member of a foundation employee, board member, or prize juror; and/or a Hilton family member.

To learn more about eligibility criteria and access an FAQ, see the Hilton Humanitarian Prize website.

Deadline: September 29, 2021
