Meet Our Winners
Lipman Family Prize winners show us what’s possible when we equip cutting-edge change-makers to build on and expand promising solutions. Our winning organizations are dedicated to a range of global causes including social justice, healthcare, education, poverty alleviation and environmental sustainability. Whether bringing a creative strategy to end gender-based violence in India to college campuses in the U.S., or expanding a sanitation project from one country to five, our winners are extending smart solutions around the world.
For the 2022-2023 cycle, the Lipman Family Prize received applications from almost 100 organizations dedicated to a range of global causes including economic development, education, environmental sustainability, gender equality, health care, human rights, food security, legal aid, and poverty alleviation. The three winners below were chosen after rigorous phases of evaluation with committees of faculty, students, and staff spanning across the University of Pennsylvania, the Lipman Family, and key external partners of the Prize.
The three winners will be celebrated at our 12th Annual Lipman Family Prize Award Ceremony on April 20, 2023, where the grand prize winner will be announced. The grand prize winning organization will receive an unrestricted cash prize of $250,000, and the two additional winning organizations will each receive $125,000.
The Lipman Family Prize winners are working to address 16 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.
In 2015, the member states of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as a “shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet.” This call to action outlines 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that are universal across economic, social, and environmental dimensions. The UNSDGs provides a common framework for connecting the work of the global community around global concerns.

The Lipman Family Prize was thrilled to announce the 2020 Beacon Awards winners. CareMessage and HOPE Enterprise received $250,000 each in unrestricted funds. The Beacon Awards were designed to reward and support Lipman Family Prize winners who demonstrated success in growing their social impact efforts.
