The Purpose Prize, now in its seventh year, is the nation’s
only large-scale investment in people over 60 who are combining
their passion and experience for social good. The Prize awards up
to $ 100,000 each to five people in encore careers creating new ways
to solve social problems.  The Prize was created in 2005 by
Civic Ventures with funding from the John Templeton Foundation
and Atlantic Philanthropies to showcase the value of experience and
innovation in later life.  For more about the Prize visit:

Now it’s possible to Invite a Purpose Prize Winner or Fellow to

Through a grant by the S.D. Bechtel Jr., Foundation, The
Purpose Prize has partnered with the Coming of Age organization to
offer panel discussions featuring Purpose Prize winners and fellows.
These talks are aimed at inspiring people 50-plus as they consider
and explore what’s next. Travel and accommodation costs would be
