Purpose Prize for social innovators over 60    

Know someone in his/her 60s, 70s, or beyond who is capitalizing on the expertise and experience of a lifetime to find solutions to local, national and global challenges?

The Purpose Prize, now in its fourth year, awards five $100,000 and five $50,000 prizes to social innovators over the age of 60. It is the country’s only large-scale investment in social innovators in the second half of life. Rather than a personal achievement award, the prizes are intended as investments in these social innovators’ future work.

In addition to the ten prizes awarded each year, the initiative also recognizes dozens of other outstanding individuals in “encore careers” - those who are redefining the so-called “retirement years”. If you know someone who fits this description, visit the Purpose Prize website for more information on how to nominate -  (I heard about this through the ASPA-CIVED listserv.)

    When you nominate a man like Thomas Greco ([email protected]) for a prize like this, you have to know that he has already accomplished more than anyone would expect, largely at his own expense. His work speaks of social commitment to positive social change. His knowledge speaks for itself. I personally nominate Tom Greco for this prize. I know the world will profit immensely from what he will do with the support.

    I think that Thomas Greco’s work is some of the most important being done today to provide creative alternatives to the disastrous policies cripling our global and local economies. If you have not yet read his “The End of Money and the Future of Civilization”, please do. Writing of this quality, and Thomas’ tireless support of alternative community-based currency initiatives are highly deserving of your financial support and perhaps a perfect candidate for your Purpose Prize.
