About Us

Do you have an effective intervention that aims to save the lives of children under five?

Globally, 15,000 children under the age of five die every day. The Children’s Prize is an open online competition with a mission to advance child health and survival by insisting on impact and data-driven interventions. The first-round runs from May 18th to July 12th, 2020 and is open to individuals and organizations globally. The Prize administrators search for an impactful project that aligns with the Foundation’s goals, has a measured reduction in child mortality, and significant experience in the field. Selected applicants will be invited to participate in a second round in August and the winner will be announced in November. One winner will have the opportunity to enter into a $150,000 grant agreement.

Since 2013, the Children’s Prize has awarded over $1,700,000 to life-saving interventions across the globe.


Proposals will be evaluated based upon the number of potential lives saved, the probability of success, and the ease of verification. Application consists of the following components:

  • Applicant information
  • Project summary
  • Calculation of impact
  • Plan for baseline and impact evaluation (typically conducted by a 3rd party)
