2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the Association — four decades of strengthening the Fulbright Program through advocacy, education, and outreach. We have grown to an organization of nearly 7,000 members and over 50 chapters across the nation, a community committed to securing the future of the Fulbright Program and amplifying its impact worldwide.
Phase One Goal: $2 million in two years
We live in perilous times. Across the globe, countries and regions are fragmenting into factions, suspicious of other peoples and cultures. In the U.S., our commitment to diplomacy seems in doubt. Now, more than ever, the world needs the power of the Fulbright Program to promote peace through international understanding.
It has been nearly twenty years since the Association has launched a capital campaign. Then, we raised $2.5 million to build an endowment that continues to fund our mission to amplify the “Fulbright Effect.” Today, we want to double that goal so that the Association and its chapters can share the Fulbright experience more widely, build a global community of alumni, and harness our talents to make the world more peaceful.
The goal of peace through understanding has inspired the Fulbright Program for 71 years. Since 1946, more than 370,000 Fulbrighters have traveled across the world to embody this commitment to peace. They now constitute an alumni community that is a powerful ongoing force for change. If you believe the world needs Fulbright now more than ever, and if you think we can do more together, support us in this campaign.
Forged in our shared transformational Fulbright experiences, the Fulbright Association is an independent organization that seeks to build upon and enhance the Fulbright international exchange experience by promoting scholarship, collaborative engagement, and cultural diplomacy throughout the global community.
