The Daniel Singer
Millennium Prize Foundation
The Daniel Singer Millennium Prize Foundation, Inc., is an educational foundation named after the author, journalist, historian and activist, who died in December 2000. The purpose of the Foundation is to encourage and develop ideas that enhance and extend democratic, civil and economic rights and social justice to all peoples of the world. Each year the Foundation seeks to present a cash prize to the author of an essay of not more than 5,000 words that advances Singer's ideas and insights concerning the next stage in the struggle toward these goals, as delineated in his last book, Whose Millennium? Theirs or Ours?
The deadline for submissions is August 31. An international panel of judges, which includes none of the trustees, reads the submitted essays. The award (assuming a worthy essay is found) is announced in December. The winner is then invited to develop a public lecture based on the winning essay.
Established as a 501 C3 charity, the Foundation is tax-exempt and can accept donations and appreciated securities. Contributions to the Foundation should be sent to the Treasurer of the Board of Trustees, Mr. Robert Capistrano, P.O. Box 2371, El Cerrito, CA 94530.
