About the Education Award

$50,000 Minimum Grant

The Education Award recognizes individuals making extraordinary contributions to the education of children thus providing them the platform from which to become fully productive members of society. Our Award honors this courageous leader at an annual Awards Ceremony and grants them funds to elevate their work.

Ultimately, our Award ensures that more children’s lives will be improved and changed forever.

Our Vision

The Education Award recognizes individuals who have made and continue to make substantial contributions to children in the educational arena. This includes individuals who have made and are making education available to severely underserved populations, or those who innovate new and effective methods of learning and teaching, and those whose work creates educational opportunity for children who are challenged or disenfranchised.

Honorees will be selected regardless of political or geographic boundaries and regardless of religious affiliation, although programs which are singularly religious or which use education to proselytize for or against any one religion are not eligible.
