The World Affairs Council invites you to consider making a gift beyond your membership in order to support public outreach in the community. Your donation will continue to support the World Affairs Council’s capacity to provide broad public access to international speakers in our community, provide teachers the resources they need to educate their students about global issues, as well as professional and youth exchange programs.
Supporters of the annual fund, endowment and programs are critical for continued operation of all World Affairs Council programs. Unlike memberships, gifts to the annual fund and endowment provide donors more flexibility in their support. You can choose which programs you want to see continue and grow, or even make use of the deep connections of the World Affairs Council to sponsor an event of your own vision. There are three avenues of support:
Endowment and Annual Fund: Donate directly to support specific programs or give to the World Affairs Council as a whole.
Global Futures, The World Affairs Council Legacy Society: Provide for the future of the World Affairs Council.
Make it Happen: Tap the rich network available to the World Affairs Council and directly support an event.
The World Affairs Council provides every resident of Washington the opportunity to become a more engaged citizen by taking an active role in discussions, cross-cultural exchanges, and educational initiatives that enrich a person’s understanding of the world. By learning about the world, community members learn more about themselves and their neighbors, and they gain a greater appreciation for the complexity of the issues that impact their lives.
The World Affairs Council needs your support to realize this vision!
