Support the Council

Donations provide crucial support to the Council’s programs in the community and enable the Council to continue its important mission to inspire engagement in international affairs through education, citizen diplomacy and public dialogue.

Thank you in advance for helping build global understanding and engagement in international affairs.

Donate Today!

Here are just some of the ways your gifts make a difference:

  • Your donations allow us to present monthly speakers to Northeast Ohio audiences on global issues and international affairs. This engages our community in public education and brings global perspectives to our region.
  • Your gifts support educational programming for over 1,500 students each year promoting their understanding of international relations and global issues, as well as professional development for teachers to support their global education goals.
  • Each year, the Council hosts over 300 professionals from around the world to meet and exchange ideas with their local counterparts. Your donations help us attract an increased number of international delegates and their spending power to our region
