REDF honors Mitchell Kapor and Freada Kapor Klein

On September 30, the Kapor Foundation’s own Mitchell Kapor and Freada Kapor Klein were honored with the 2010 Inno+prise Award at REDF‘s 2010 Benefit + Social Enterprise Expo.  Secretary of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Matthew Cate, also received the award.

REDF creates jobs for individuals who are overcoming chronic poverty, homelessness, criminal history, substance abuse or mental illness.  REDF created the Inno+prise Award to recognize and celebrate institutions and individuals that work at the intersection of innovation and enterprise to improve the lives of those most heavily impacted by challenging social problems.  The Kapors received the award for their leadership and dedication to ensuring justice, opportunity and equity for vulnerable and underserved populations.

In addition to Mitch and Freada’s recognition, we also celebrated the debut of REDF’s new video at the event, which was created by our own Eric Wong and the KEI Creative team in collaboration with a music producer.  To see the amazing video, click HERE.
