Congratulations to all our finalists and winners!


How would you design a new way to think about Tzedakah?

The Tzedakah Box

The tzedakah box is an iconic object. How can the tzedakah box be brought into active dialogue with contemporary thinking about philanthropy and social change?


As our giving shifts from coins to credit card transactions and from dollar bills to digital donation buttons, how can we harness technology to reflect and influence the way we give?

Out of the Box

Think outside of the box. What statement do you want to make—using sculpture, a conceptual installation or another medium—about tzedakah in the 21st century?
