Sillerman Prize of $5K for Innovations in Philanthropy Awarded

April 21, 2010

The Sillerman Center for the Advancement of Philanthropy announced the winner of its year-long competition for the best plan to increase philanthropic values and philanthropy on college campuses. The winner was a mixed team of undergraduates, Heller and IBS students who presented their plan called The National Student Philanthropic Front: Building the Trajectory of a Giver. A group of judges made up of University officials and two outside philanthropists selected the application to receive the very first cash award from this new competition. Julian Olidort, a junior at Brandeis; Charles Francis, a Heller MPP student; Yuki Haselawa, an IBS student; and Robin Lichtenstein, a junior; will split the $5,000 cash award.

Judges also awarded a runner-up prize of $1,500 to a team of six for its submission, Give! A Plan for Fostering Philanthropy on College Campuses. The team, which included members of BOLLI and BNC as well as students from Heller's MS and MBA programs, won accolades for its diversity.
