During this round, we welcomed all – individuals, organizations and teams – who are driven to save children’s lives to submit a brief proposal online. We seek the best and most effective project proposal that will save the greatest number of children’s lives. The winning project will be awarded $250,000 to carry out their proposed plan. The winner will be announced October 1st.

The deadline to submit your Round 1 entry form was Saturday, May 14th, 2016 at 11:59pm EDT.

Children’s Prize 101:21st century philanthropy to helpsave children’s lives.

Philanthropy is about choice. The choice to give and how to give. Philanthropy is also about possibility. The possibility to significantly impact and change the course of a human life. Gone are the days when you have to wonder if you’re effecting change. Philanthropy today is different, it is evolving, and at our fingertips is a new era of giving.
