The Andrew Carnegie Medals of Philanthropy "were inaugurated on December 10, 2001 by the more than 20 Carnegie institutions that he established during his lifetime all over the world.

"This award, created at the centennial observance of Andrew Carnegie’s official career as a philanthropist, is given every two years to one or more individuals who, like Andrew Carnegie have dedicated their private wealth to public good and who have a sustained an impressive career as a philanthropist...

"The three members of the steering committee who organized the Centennial celebration and who launched the medal are permanent members of the selection committee — Carnegie Corporation of New York, Carnegie Institute of Washington and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Two of the other 20 institutions will rotate each year." [1]
