Multiplying Good (formerly the Jefferson Awards for Public Service) is the largest and most prestigious platform for service in America. Co-founded in 1972 by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the organization was born out of a profound need to elevate the very best of the country and to use the power of recognition and storytelling as a means of multiplying the good occurring in communities all around the nation.
Today, MG’s nationwide network of media and corporate partners today reaches 110 million Americans and have recognized more than 65,000 grassroots unsung heroes. We have trained more than 30,000 young people as empathetic leaders, changemakers and global citizens. Applying service as a tool for personal growth, we help individuals discover their ability to bring about positive change, deliver the skills they need to do it well, and, by validating their impact, inspire them to do more.
