About this grant
The program goal is to enhance the development of philanthropy in emerging market countries. To this end, Alliance Publishing Trust will support the finalists of the Olga Alexeeva Memorial Prize to travel to the Emerging Societies – Emerging Philanthropies International Forum in Peterhoff, Russia in 2013, and to the WINGS Forum in Istanbul, Turkey, in 2014. The prize was envisioned during a 2012 seminar organized to honor the late Olga Alexeeva’s significant contributions to the field of philanthropy globally. Besides commemorating Olga’s memory, the prize is envisioned to be a field-building exercise that acknowledges individuals who have demonstrated remarkable leadership, creativity, and results in developing philanthropy for progressive social change in an emerging market country or countries. Alliance Publishing Trust is a registered United Kingdom charity that aims to facilitate the exchange of information and ideas among philanthropists, social investors, and others working for social change worldwide.
