The Songbird Lyre
Awarded to stellar individuals for achievements in their personal lives. This award is funded by WWII survivor Ms. King. Having lost her entire family at the age of 18 to the war, she changed her identity and name for survival. The new name, translated as "songbird lyre" in her native tongue, marked a new era in her life in which she lived in severe poverty - but became known for giving to the poor around her. She raised five daughters without the support of her veteran husband, and lived an extremely frugal life for decades. At the age of 89, she dedicated half of every penny saved over her lifetime to her grandchildren, and the other half to charity. In honor of her philanthropy, Empire 72 administers The Songbird Lyre Award to recognize other unsung heroes who has given much in their private lives. To nominate, or receive more information, please email us at converge [at] empire72.com.

Awards Overview*
All Empire award applications and nominations are now unified and open globally. The purpose of the awards is to allow us to maximize the long-term impact of winners akin to a fellowship; though there are various ways to achieve this goal, Empire awards provide one or a combination of the following concrete contributions to successful applicants:

Fundraising support (up to $32,000 value): fully-complete and certified pieces by Empire 72 will be made available to the successful applicant for fundraising. 100% of all proceeds are retained by the applicant. Previously only available to support non-profit fundraising under the Empire Equilibrium award, all winners are now eligible for direct fundraising support.

In-kind donations (up to $62,000 value): previously limited to Empire Nebula and Empire Dominion winners, all awards now may feature in-kind donations. These are determined on a project-by-project basis with the successful applicant, and historically have reached combined values up to $62,000.

Cash grants: ($500 up to $10,000): previously limited to the Empire Equilibrium seed grant, all winners may be offered cash grants to expedite their projects, especially when a gap in existing funding schemes, critical need, or strategic timing for intervention is proven. All cash awards are judged with the same criteria as the Empire Equilibrium award, and will be provided in a step-wise process.

If you have been nominated or are ready to apply, do not hesitate to contact us to arrange real-time, individualized guidance.
