The Malta Social Impact Awards 2020 are still going ahead and applications have been extended until the 5th May, giving those wishing to apply more time to prepare their proposal and submit their application.
The Malta Social Impact Awards offer non-profit organisations, social entrepreneurs and innovators the opportunity to win both financial and non-financial support to develop a sustainable initiative that has a positive social impact on Malta.
Eligible initiatives include those that target the relief of poverty and suffering, the advancement of health, education or culture, the empowerment of marginalised communities and minorities, or the protection of the environment and animals, to name a few.
Those initiatives shortlisted as semi-finalists will participate in online mentoring sessions with TAKEOFF business incubator, and will then be paired with a CEO through Vistage Malta for further mentoring in preparation for MSIA 2020 final event, which is due to be held at the end of the year.
The winners will be awarded grants and additional non-financial support in the form of mentoring and advisory services from leading businesses in Malta. Over the years, MSIA together with the support of local businesses and individuals has awarded over €350,000 in grants to 12 local initiatives that have impacted the lives of thousands of individuals in Malta.
“With many passionate voices giving input, the Malta Social Impact Awards provided a platform where we could learn, grow and be inspired, focus our ideas to give them structure, and aid us in ensuring that the initiative will succeed,” Natalie Muschamp, Step Up for Parkinson’s – MSIA 2018 winners.
