Ways to Support
The World Affairs Council of Jacksonville, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, is a vital hub for civic and corporate leadership in Northeast Florida. Membership dues, contributions, grants, sponsorships and planned gifts provide the funding to support our highly acclaimed programs now and into the future. Your contributions open up a world of information and support our programming and services.
INNOVATIONS IN GLOBAL EDUCATION ENDOWMENT FUND
The lack of understanding of our complex, competitive, and interdependent world remains a serious educational deficiency for our community. Better preparing our teachers and students begins with our schools along with complementary and key Council experiences. By motivating our students and helping them understand, connect, and engage with their world, we will strengthen the future of our community and country.
We ask your support for our new Innovations through our Global Education Endowment Fund to refine and expand our existing programs and seed new initiatives for students and teachers.
