The Charles Bronfman Prize is an award of $100,000 presented to a humanitarian under the age of fifty whose innovative work, fueled by their Jewish values, has significantly improved the world. The Prize was founded in 2004 by Ellen Bronfman Hauptman and Stephen Bronfman, together with their spouses, Andrew Hauptman and Claudine Blondin Bronfman, to honor their father on his 70th Birthday.

After hundreds of nominations from all over the world, The Charles Bronfman Prize has not just supported individual humanitarians, but it has created a fellowship that embodies the spirit, values and beliefs that have defined Charles Bronfman’s life.

Each of the Charles Bronfman Prize laureates reminds us of the power of commitment, passion and courage in tackling the pressing problems of our day. This growing fellowship is leaving a lasting legacy of change and a determination to make an impact on a world that is better and more just than the one they inherited.

Charles Bronfman has spent his entire life investing in the success of future generations. His spirit, values and steadfast belief that a better world is possible are the driving forces behind the Charles Bronfman Prize.
