For its 7th edition, BNP Paribas Wealth Management Prize for Individual Philanthropy distinguishes two couples of philanthropists.
The Grand Prix goes to Charly and Lisa Kleissner, founders of the KL Felicitas Foundation, for their global work in impact investing. Through their co-creation of impact networks designed to serve both social entrepreneurs and impact investors, combined with advocating through transparency their commitment to align 100% of their assets with their values, the Kleissners have demonstrated that impact investing can be a replicable investment strategy for philanthropists around the world.
The Jury's Special Prize goes to Tomasz and Barbara Sadowski for their social integration work and promotion of their social franchise model in Poland and abroad. Their Barka Foundation for Mutual Help empowers and reintegrates socially marginalised groups through education, training, entrepreneurship and housing programmes.
