MacArthur Honors Creative and Effective Nonprofits

MacArthur Foundation

On February 16, 2012, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation announced the recipients for the MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions.  According to the Foundation’s website, these awards “continue the Foundation’s history of building and supporting institutions that address some of the world’s most pressing problems in creative ways.” As noted by MacArthur President Robert Galluci: “From Chicago to Kampala, these extraordinary organizations demonstrate exceptional creativity and effectiveness. They provide new ways to address old problems. They generate provocative ideas and they reframe well-worn debates. And their impact is altogether disproportionate to their size.”

The Chicago-based foundation chose 15 organizations from the US and abroad; each organization will receive grants ranging from $350,000 to $2.5 million, based on the annual budget of the organization. Below are the recipients of the 2012 MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions.
