MEET OUR 10
WINNERS!

At the Elevate Prize Foundation, we believe that everyone has the power to do good. And that one positive action can inspire another, igniting a chain reaction on a global scale. So we’re on a mission to amplify the impact of people working for social change, to drive progress together, and to awaken the hero in all of us.

This year we awarded $5 million to the 10 winners of the inaugural Elevate Prize, as well as access to expert networks and resources, so they can take their ideas to the next level. Support their world-changing work, and help us amplify their impact – at a time in our history when it’s most needed.

Meet the winners of the first annual Elevate Prize. From 1297 exceptional candidates, it came down to these 10 extraordinary individuals, for their impact on humanity, and for the inspiration they give to people everywhere. We call them our heroes. Read on to find out why.
