GFCF is proud to be a part of the third annual Olga Alexeeva Memorial Prize, which was established in memory of Olga Alexeeva, founder of the Philanthropy Bridge Foundation (PBF), by former PBF trustees in honour of her memory and beliefs.
As in past years, the prize of £5,000 will be awarded to an individual who has demonstrated remarkable leadership, creativity and results in developing philanthropy for progressive social change in an emerging market country or countries. The prize will be for the individual winner to use at their discretion.
A shortlist of up to six finalists will be developed by the three founders of the prize:
– Maria Chertok, CAF Russia and former PBF Trustee
– Caroline Hartnell, Alliance and former PBF Chair
– Jenny Hodgson, GFCF and former PBF adviser
The final winner of the £5,000 prize will be selected by a panel of judges and will be invited to deliver a keynote speech at a global philanthropy conference in 2015. In addition, all shortlisted candidates will be invited to the conference as special guests, and profiled in a special supplement of the June 2015 issue of Alliance magazine.
Now all we need is good nominations! The closing date for applications is February 28th 2015. For more information on the Prize and to download the application form, please click here. All questions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
