The Social Innovation Prize in Wisconsin includes a $5,000 investment in an exceptional individual over the age of 50 who is defying expectations by channeling his or her creativity and talent to address critical social problems at the local, regional, or national level. The winner also selects an organization to receive an additional $5,000. See more.
This year’s winner was Rev. John and Dr. Susan McFadden, Founders of the Fox Valley Memory Project—the state’s leading dementia friendly, capable community. Their primary goal is to educate and create more open communication about dementia in an attempt to end the stigma and social isolation associated with it.
The Center for Life Transitions weekend retreat, LifeSHIFT: Work & the Christian Journey, now viable in 9 cities around the country, was nominated for the award.
