The Network of European Foundations’ European Mercator Fund recently launched the first annual ‘Raymond Georis Prize for Innovative Philanthropy in Europe’. Nominations now welcome.
The prize will reward an individual, non-profit organization, foundation or project which has conceived and implemented an outstanding and innovative philanthropic programme in Europe. The winning project will illustrate a creative philanthropic initiative with a high impact result and will express a strong belief in the role of Europe and European values in global philanthropy. The prize, an original piece of art, will be awarded on 1 June 2004 in Athens at the European Foundation Centre’s General Assembly.
Raymond Georis is widely recognized as the ‘father’ of the European foundation community, and the award aims to acknowledge his remarkable contribution to the sector and to stimulate innovative philanthropy in Europe.
Entries close on 30 April 2004. Nominations must be submitted by a third party (The Nominator).
For the application form for nominations contact Maria Kennedy Le Vaslot at the European Mercator Fund.
