Humanitarian Award

$100,000 Minimum Grant

The Humanitarian Award recognizes individuals making extraordinary contributions to children through social or humanitarian services. Each of our Honorees has created a sustainable, high-impact program that has significantly changed the lives of vulnerable children by providing basic needs like food, shelter, access to medical care, and an improved quality of life so they may grow in an environment where they are loved and cared for.
