Here’s some cool funding news to kick off the new month:

This past Friday, Center City domestic violence nonprofit Women Against Abuse (WAA) was named the winner of the 2017 Lipman Family Prize, the annual global social impact award administered by  Wharton.

The honor comes with an unrestricted $250,000, plus the opportunity for WAA’s staff to take executive education courses at Wharton, attend Penn’s Executive Program in Social Impact Strategy and apply for a scholarship for the  Nonprofit Leadership  program in the  School of Social Policy & Practice.

Over 115 organizations applied for this year’s prize. The two runners-up —Boston’s Seeding Labs and Berkeley’s We Care Solar — will receive $50,000 in unrestricted funding and executive training from Penn.
