The Collaboration Prize is a national award presented to nonprofit organizations that collaborate effectively to gain greater impact. The prize is designed to identify and showcase models of collaboration among nonprofit organizations.
Recognizing the impact that can be achieved from working together, the prize identifies and showcases collaborations among two or more nonprofit organizations that cooperate to demonstrate innovative and effective responses to challenges or opportunities. The prize was created and is funded by the Lodestar Foundation in collaboration with the Arizona-Indiana-Michigan Alliance and leaders in the nonprofit sector.
In 2011, the Collaboration Prize will award a total of $250,000 to the collaborations that best exemplify the impact that can result from working together. Each of the eight finalists will receive $12,500 and the winner will receive an additional $150,000.
Applications may be submitted by any individual familiar with the collaboration, including an employee of any entity involved in the collaboration. Applications for the 2011 Collaboration Prize open June 1, 2010, and close on July 16, 2010.
