Support Our Mission

International exchanges are at a crossroads. From coronavirus to executive orders, the challenges of 2020 have reshaped our mission to create access to international exchange programs worldwide. With more than 75% of programs cancelled or postponed, your support is integral to sustain our ability to advance global engagement. We thank our community for ensuring the future of Cultural Vistas, read more on the many ways to give through our monthly Giving Spotlights.

Invest in Global Leadership

Individuals and organizations can help us continue to create high-quality programming for the global community by investing in scaling our programming and leveraging technology to expand access to international experiences:

  1. Increase access, equity and inclusion in global affairs by funding our STEM Study Tour for a college or university, expand the number of individuals participating in our signature Cultural Vistas Fellowship program, and support our collaboration on the Thurgood Marshall College Fund Global Fellows Initiative.
  2. Develop a strong and vibrant civil society around the world by helping us scale our civic initiatives and strengthen democracy across the globe.
  3. Foster greater inclusion and connection in global learning through funding to innovate our online Global Competency Certificate program which leverages technology to equip professionals with expanded networks, global competencies and leadership skills.
  4. Empower alumni to address global challenges in their communities so that together we can find solutions, create a more inclusive society, and learn from each other. Sponsor a convening on a topic and we will bring together our diverse global network of alumni experts, leaders, and changemakers.
