William E. Simon Prize for Philanthropic Leadership

The purpose of the William E. Simon Prize for Philanthropic Leadership is to honor a prominent philanthropist who has shown exemplary leadership through his or her own charitable giving and has taken great care to ensure that his or her philanthropy supports causes and programs that have achieved positive results. The Prize honors philanthropists who are guided by principles such as personal responsibility, resourcefulness, volunteerism, and helping people to help themselves. The Prize is administered by the Philanthropy Roundtable and carries with it a $250,000 award, payable to a charity designated by the honoree. Each year’s recipient is recognized and honored at the Philanthropy Roundtable’s Annual Meeting.
