Investing in Innovation

The Pegasus Prize is a $50,000 social innovation grant awarded to nonprofit organizations, for-profit organizations with a charitable purpose, and hybrid organizations applying innovative approaches to addressing community needs. The Prize rewards organizations applying new ways to solve ongoing problems that are faster, cost-effective, data-driven and lead to better results for the residents of Dallas County.

Given The Dallas Foundation’s reputation as a trusted steward of philanthropic resources and our well-documented track record of investing in transformational solutions, our recognition of the annual recipient signals both a financial investment in the organization as well as an endorsement of the importance of its work and elevates the visibility of the awardee, allowing for additional community investments.
