The Malta Social Impact Awards

The Malta Social Impact Awards is an initiative that aims to create opportunities for change-makers, while inspiring others to give and to give well. By bringing business and philanthropy together, MSIA supports local projects that have a positive social impact on Malta and helps social purpose organisations grow into stronger entities. In light of this year’s extraordinary circumstances, applications for MSIA 2020 reopened. Individuals, non-profit organisations, social entrepreneurs and innovators can still apply for MSIA for the chance to win both financial and non-financial support to develop a sustainable initiative that has a positive social impact on Malta.

Semi-finalists will attend workshops by TAKEOFF, Malta’s premier business incubator at the University of Malta, to develop their social initiatives and look at their sustainability and long-term vision. The semi-finalists will present their initiatives to a panel of judges in January 2021 and the ones chosen as finalists will be paired with an Executive from Vistage for furthering mentoring in preparation for the final event in March 2021. The winners will be awarded up to €50,000 in funding, as well as pro bono mentoring and advisory services. 

MSIA are looking for new and innovative initiatives that are making a difference and that can be developed into long-term initiatives which can continue to change lives, have a positive effect on the environment or create social change. Application forms may be downloaded directly from
