About Us

The Charles Bronfman Prize is an humanitarian award.

Charles Bronfman has spent a lifetime developing, implementing and supporting initiatives that help to strengthen the unity of the Jewish people; investing in young people to strengthen their knowledge and appreciation of their history, heritage and cultural identity; and impacting on the direction of Jewish life and community.

The Charles Bronfman Prize awards the recipient(s) $100,000. It celebrates the vision and talent of an individual or team -- under 50 years of age -- whose humanitarian work has contributed significantly to the betterment of the world. The achievements of Prize recipients exemplify the Jewish values and regard for humanity that provide inspiration to the next generations.

An internationally recognized panel of judges, each of whom represents the highest human and Jewish values, selects the Prize winner.
