PALO ALTO, Calif.

The Skoll Foundation has announced the six winners of the 2022 Skoll Award for Social Innovation.

The Awards highlight leaders and organizations that advance transformational social change around the world. Formerly known as the Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship, its recipients reflect the Foundation’s evolved strategy that extends beyond social entrepreneurs to also include movement builders, system orchestrators, and coalitions driving change in innovative ways.

The Awards Ceremony will be streamed online at skoll.org/live on Wednesday, April 6 at 7:00 am PT/ 10:00 am ET.

The Skoll Award for Social Innovation celebrates the extraordinary leaders and organizations working to create a more sustainable, peaceful, and prosperous world for all. Awardee organizations receive $1.5 million in unrestricted funding to scale their work and increase their impact. They receive an additional $750,000 in flexible support to make subgrants to key partners and to extend their capacity in areas like monitoring and evaluation and communications.

“In the face of growing global challenges, these social innovators have never had a bigger role to play and have never needed more support,” said Don Gips, CEO of the Skoll Foundation. “Instead of scaling back, they have built bigger and bolder solutions to drive climate action, democracy and civic engagement, innovative healthcare models, and the shifting of capital to communities of color.”

Each of the 2022 Awardees leads an organization primed for even greater impact in their respective geographies across the United States, Brazil, India, Bangladesh, and countries throughout sub-Saharan Africa.

Introducing the 2022 Awardees:

Common Future connects a network of community wealth-building institutions in the U.S. with restorative and reparative capital to build an economy that includes everyone. It influences decision-makers across philanthropy, finance, and government to further support those solutions that build power in communities of color across the U.S. Common Future catalyzed a radical shift of $280 million in capital from traditional wealth-holders to communities of color.
