Editor's note: Eligible nonprofits must have operating budgets of $500,000 or more, not less. (7/14, 2:52 p.m.)
This past spring, the Barry & Marie Lipman Family Prize announced its first-ever Philly winner in Women Against Abuse.

The domestic violence nonprofit received the international award — and the accompanying $250,000 and access to executive education courses — because of “its role in pioneering Shared Safety, Philadelphia’s coordinated community response to relational violence,” according to a statement.

Can we make it two for seven, Philly?

The Lipman Prize and Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, which houses the award, just opened the submission period for their seventh annual financial award for organizations that create “sustainable solutions to significant social and economic challenges.”

Only nonprofits that have been operating for three years or more and have a budget of $500,000 or more are eligible. Two finalists will also win $50,000.

If your organization meets these criteria, apply for the 2018 award by Aug. 14.
