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.

Application and Selection

Awarding the Pegasus Prize

The Foundation has paused the acceptance of Pegasus Prize applications in 2023 as staff and committee members review and update the application process to better serve our community partners. We look forward to accepting new Pegasus Prize requests in 2024 once our review is complete.

Applications for the 2024 Pegasus Prize will be accepted through the Foundation’s online portal. We anticipate opening the 2024 application in the late summer/early fall.

The application period is now closed. Please check back periodically for details about the next application cycle.
