The Beacon Awards are about celebrating philanthropy. The awards are about recognising, celebrating, and inspiring people to give charitably, and to do it well. Each Beacon prize is awarded to someone who is powering philanthropy in their own fields.
Beacon is more than an awards ceremony. It is a fellowship network of inspirational and diverse philanthropists, with whom we can connect and from whom we can learn.
By highlighting a range of pioneering approaches to giving, we aspire to positively influence the philanthropy of future generations.
Beacon is looking for people who are using their resources to benefit society. The amount of money they give is not, on its own, important.
What we are seeking are people whose work will inspire others and whose achievements and lessons learned will help other philanthropists as they think about and plan their approaches to changing the world.
