We strive to make a positive change in our world. We are finding new ways to alleviate poverty, build bridges between governments and create policies that promote health, welfare and security.

How do we do this? By training leaders who can act as well as think. By nurturing ideas that can revolutionize our society. By building networks with the people, places and programs that help us find solutions to the challenges that face our global community.  

When you make a gift to the School, you help make this happen. 

Why Give?

There are many reasons you may choose to support the School. Perhaps you see yourself in the bright and ambitious students who are the promising leaders of tomorrow. Perhaps you believe we need to better understand and collaborate with the next great global power. Or perhaps you believe in the power of philanthropy — how your gifts, especially when pooled with the gifts of others, can affect real change and have real impact.

Whatever your reason for giving, your support makes a positive change in our world. Learn about giving opportunities today.
