Your tax-deductible membership contribution to the Council is critical in bringing together leading global voices, conducting independent research, and engaging the public to explore ideas that will shape our global future.

Individuals and organizations that support the Council believe, as we do, that greater knowledge and engagement create a more open and promising world for all. Global issues require global engagement on a personal scale. That’s why we make global affairs more accessible to more people. Because open minds open possibilities.
