“Private philanthropy and the organizations it supports are part of the life-blood of America—aiding and uplifting those in need, identifying and addressing problems which others, including government, have not yet even recognized.” — Howard Husock

The Manhattan Institute’s Social Entrepreneurship Awards honor nonprofit leaders who have founded innovative private organizations to help address some of America’s most pressing social problems. The awards have previously included two prizes, the William E. Simon Prize for Lifetime Achievement in Social Entrepreneurship and the Richard C. Cornuelle Award for Social Entrepreneurship. 

From 2007-2017, Manhattan Institute awarded the William E. Simon Prize for Lifetime Achievement in Social Entrepreneurship, was presented to a prominent founder or leader of a highly effective organization. In recognition of the dedication and personal sacrifice required to sustain a successful career as a ground-breaking social entrepreneur, the award includes a personal honorarium of $100,000.

From 2001-2017, the Richard Cornuelle Award for Social Entrepreneurship was presented to as many as four nonprofit organizations that directly serve the public. The Cornuelle Awards nurture private solutions to difficult public problems. Winning organizations received a cash award of $25,000 to recognize the creative energy of the nonprofit sector by highlighting new ideas and mature organizations led by social innovators.
