Award to a USA, Canada, or International nonprofit organization to recognize outstanding contributions to alleviation of human suffering. The purpose of this award is to honor and advance the recipient organization’s efforts and call attention to the global need for humanitarian aid, thereby encouraging others to expand their support.
The Hilton Humanitarian Prize is awarded based on achievements, rather than future goals. Therefore, the letter of nomination should focus on what the organization has accomplished. Key areas that are considered include: extraordinary contributions toward alleviating human suffering, an established record of achievement, innovation in program design, demonstration of effective partnerships, organizational capacity and administrative efficiency, ability to serve as a model for other nonprofits and demonstration of impact.
The Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize is the world’s largest annual humanitarian award presented to a nonprofit organization judged to have made extraordinary contributions toward alleviating human suffering.
