The £5,000 annual prize was established in memory of Olga Alexeeva, former director of CAF Russia and founder of Philanthropy Bridge Foundation, in honour of her memory and beliefs. The prize will be for the individual winner to use at their discretion.

This year, for the first time, Alliance will be organizing the prize in association with WINGS, CIVICUS and the Global Fund for Community Foundations. The aim of this collaboration is to broaden the reach of the prize.

All finalists will be featured in a special supplement to be published with the June 2015 issue of Alliance. The winner will be announced, and invited to deliver a keynote speech, at a global philanthropy conference later this year (to be announced). All finalists will be invited to this conference.

So now all we need is good nominations for the third round of the prize! The closing date for nominations is 28 February. Click here for more information about the prize, including details of past winners, and to download a nomination form.
