Wallace Fountain Award
Recognizing Kindness, Generosity and Cooperation for the Human Good
The Wallace Fountain Award is an international honor presented to an individual with a proven record of exceptional generosity who, in the spirit of Sir Richard Wallace, uses personal wealth and resources in partnership with public or non-profit organizations to benefit the common good.
The recipient must be actively involved in an effort to alleviate human suffering and/or inequity caused by a lack of access to essential human needs, education or opportunity, and whose generosity encourages others to make philanthropy a significant part of their life’s work.

The first award will be presented in Paris on the 22nd of September 2022 in conjunction with the 150th Anniversary of the first Wallace Fountain. The award presentation will rotate between London and Paris.
The award recipient will be chosen by a panel of distinguished judges.
