The Peter F. Drucker Award of $100,000 for Non-Profit Innovation has been launched for the year 2014. Non-profit organizations demonstrating change that creates a new dimension of performance are invited to submit application for the award. Highly effective programs that have made a demonstrable difference in the lives of the people they serve are strongly encouraged to apply.
The Drucker Institute of Claremont Graduate University offers the annual award which was launched by Peter Drucker himself in 1991. Peter F. Drucker was a writer, professor, management consultant and self-described ‘social ecologist,’ who explored the way human beings organize themselves and interact much the way an ecologist would observe and analyze the biological world. Drucker was faculty at Claremont Graduate University for 30-plus years. In 2002, he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor.
The major purpose of the award is to find the innovators (small or large), recognize and celebrate their example, and to inspire others.
