New Jersey-based Puffin Foundation and Nation Institute will grant a $100,000 award to Reverend Barry Lynn of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
The award will be given at the annual Nation Institute Gala in New York. Mr. Lynn's work is being acknowledged because of his efforts to protect religious freedom. Puffin Foundation's Perry Rosenstein is more focused on providing grants to artists and thinkers who do not usually secure grant money from more traditional foundations.
