$25,000 Fetzer Awards to NGOs Furthering Love, Forgiveness 

Fetzer Institute Competition

The Fetzer Institute is creating a tangible incentive and recognition for non-governmental organizations whose work furthers love and forgiveness–a pair of $25,000 awards and exposure via a global, web-based competition. Asking, “What in the world are YOU doing?” the program will honor an NGO within the United States and one from elsewhere in the world.

The Fetzer Institute wants to recognize, celebrate, and honor the good work done by a vast array of public service organizations while deepening its understanding of the connection between the Fetzer mission and the broader NGO/nonprofit world.  Entries will be featured in the Global Gallery of Love and Forgiveness — a showcase of inspiring videos from around the world.

Deadline for submission is January 31, 2013, with public voting open from February 1 until February 14, 2013 (that’s right — Valentine’s Day). A panel of judges from the Fetzer Institute’s NGO Advisory Council and administration will select the winners of the $25,000 awards to be announced in March of 2013.  A third prize of $5,000 will go to the entry that receives the most love from the online voting process.  To enter, register and apply here.

Nonprofit organizations/NGOs working for a minimum of 3 years at local, national, or international levels, as well as public/private partnerships performing public service functions on a not-for-profit basis, are eligible for submission to the award. Fetzer is particularly looking for applications from developing countries and countries in conflict and/or transition.
