Social Entrepreneurship Award, Manhattan Institute
The Manhattan Institute recognized Civic Builders with a Social Entrepreneurship Award, which recognizes innovative nonprofit leaders, independent of government, who have helped students, veterans, and educators achieve success. The award was presented November 4, 2010, in New York City.
Established in 2001, the Manhattan Institute Social Entrepreneurship Initiative is supported by the William E. Simon Foundation and JM Kaplan Fund. Nominations are made by outsiders who have supported the organizations that they nominate. After initial screening by Manhattan Institute staff, ten finalists are chosen by the award program’s selection committee, consisting of leaders from the philanthropic and academic community. Winners are chosen only after a site visit to the program and an extended in-person interview. Download PDF
