Skidmore Prize

The inspiration for the name of this prize: The Skidmore Fountain in Portland’s Old Town, which bears this inscription: “Good citizens are the riches of a city.

🔐The 2024 Skidmore Prize nomination period has ended. Thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate a nonprofit superstar. 🏆Winners will be announced at the end of August — keep an eye out!

This fall, we celebrate four remarkable individuals doing exceptional work for Portland-area nonprofits. Each Skidmore Prize winner is the embodiment of community dedication, a testament to the power of passion and purpose.

Their stories of resilience, determination, and unwavering commitment to social causes leave us awestruck and motivated to do more. In recognizing their outstanding accomplishments, we honor not just their achievements but the potential in all of us to make meaningful differences.

Nominees for the Skidmore Prize must be 35 and under in 2024 and work part-time+ for a local nonprofit. Winners will receive their awards, including prizes of $4,000, at a special luncheon in early fall.
