Ford launches Visionaries awards to mark 75 years

To mark its 75th anniversary, the Ford Foundation has launched its Visionaries Awards, under which 12 social innovators who are working to improve the lives of millions of people around the globe will receive $100,000 each. The idea, which is similar to the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust’s Visionaries awards, launched in 2005 and running over five years (see the interview with Roy Head in Alliance, February 2011), is to raise the profile of these individuals whose work and ideas, Ford believes, have a potentially great impact and to provide them with the financial support to help them explore that impact.
