The Prince's Prize Winner for Innovative Philanthropy 2020 is Dr. Douglas Jackson, President, and CEO of Project C.U.R.E.

As the winner, Dr. Douglas Jackson was invited to speak at the Prince's Roundtable on Philanthropy 2020. "I am incredibly impressed with Prince Albert's global leadership and passion for sustainable solutions, and the Tocqueville Foundation's commitment to humanity, particularly in health and education. It was an honor to be selected for the Prince's Prize and to be recognized on behalf of the volunteers and staff of Project C.U.R.E. for our work in health systems strengthening around the world. Working together, we will save lives and ease suffering for thousands of the world's neediest citizens and achieve the common purposes of our three organizations."

The Prince's Prize for Innovative Philanthropy is a global initiative jointly developed by The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and The Tocqueville Foundation. Its goal is to highlight projects and initiatives that have triggered innovative activity in the field of philanthropy, seeking out individuals and organizations that inspire others and demonstrate a strong impact or potential impact.

The Prize for Innovative Philanthropy results from HSH Prince Albert of Monaco's close involvement in the Prince's Roundtable on Philanthropy, a closed-door discussion of leading international philanthropists which takes place immediately following the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting in Davos. Each year, the Roundtable examines a subject through the window of philanthropy and invites esteemed speakers to bring their unique perspectives to the discussion.

The Prince's Prize Advisory Board composed of members from the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and the Tocqueville Foundation reaches out to a select group of leaders in various fields to make up the Nominating Committee, which includes distinguished leaders, philanthropists, entrepreneurs, foundation, directors, academics, and previous participation of the Roundtable on Philanthropy. Members of the Nominating Committee are then asked to put forward a nominee for the Prize.

The criteria guide for the selection process includes originality, ability to scale, ability to replicate, impact or potential impact, funds raised or funds leveraged. Once examined across the five judging criteria, the nominees are considered as a collective group. When selecting semi-finalists, the aim is to identify a collection of initiatives that represent the diverse cultural approaches to philanthropy from around the world, furthering the reach of the Prize as a source of inspiration for together philanthropic efforts.

Nominees are to be those responsible for projects or initiatives that have triggered new and important activities in the field of philanthropy.

Five semi-finalists are submitted to the Prince's Prize Jury for consideration. After deliberation and a vote, the Jury submits a shortlist to HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, who then chooses who will be awarded the Prince's Prize.

Delivering health and hope to the world. Thousands of people die every day in the developing world because local hospitals & clinics don't have the medical supplies and equipment needed to save lives in their communities. Children are missing the chance to get an education and live a full life due to illnesses that would be treatable if they had access to proper health services. It's Project C.U.R.E.'s mission to change that. Together we will deliver health & hope to the world.
