Fred Morgan Kirby Prize for Scaling Impact

The Fred Morgan Kirby Prize for Scaling Social Impact is an annual global prize of USD $150,000 in unrestricted funds that amplifies and accelerates the work of an enterprise working to scale its impact on social or environmental problems around the world.

Named after early entrepreneur Fred Morgan Kirby, this award is made possible through the generous partnership of the F. M. Kirby Foundation.

The Kirby Prize recognizes enterprises pursuing strategic pathways to impact at scale, who are close to the challenges at hand, who center the voice and experience of the populations they serve, who have demonstrated traction, and who embody courageous and collaborative leadership.  This prize is open to any legal form, geographic location, and any social or environmental impact area.

The Kirby Impact Prize is a tiered application process that begins with an open application period running November 1, 2023 to January 8, 2024 and award winner announced in late May 2024.
