Farash Prize for Social Entrepreneurship
awarded in 2012, the Farash Prize honors the legacy of Max Farash—a business
entrepreneur of the highest order who, along with his wife, Marian, recognized
the importance of supporting social causes in their community.
social entrepreneurs too often go unrecognized by their own communities. The
goal of the Farash Prize is, first, to honor what has been accomplished.
Second, by giving visibility and credibility to individual entrepreneurs and
their organizations, the Prize encourages the creation of innovative approaches
to not only meet, but reduce, community needs. The winner’s affiliated
organization receives $100,000.
