Hamburg, Germany-based Körber Foundation champions encore-age adults through its "Encore" prize, modeled on Encore.org's Purpose Prize. Led by Karin Haist, Jana Lunz and Susanne Kutz, the program recognizes 60+ social entrepreneurs using their life/work experience to improve their communities. Ten winners have received 60,000 euros each in the program's three year history. Their stories have inspired older - and younger - Germans to take a positive view of later-life opportunities. Their work honors founder Kurt Körber, himself a business leader who led and funded many philanthropic causes starting in his 50s.
