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 and are tax deductible within the amount allowable by law.


So that we can assist you in your end of year giving, please keep the following dates in mind for a charitable income tax deduction in the 2018 tax year.

  • Checks sent via the U.S. Postal Service must be postmarked on or before December 31, 2018. Checks sent via any other carriers must be received by December 31, 2018.

  • Gifts of appreciated public stock should be made before December 26, 2018 to ensure that they arrive by December 31, 2018. Please note that Mutual Fund shares can take much longer and should be initiated immediately to be completed by December 31, 2018.

  • Online credit card gifts (using the links below) may be made through end of day on December 31, 2018.

If you have any questions, please email the Council office at info@worldaffairscounciljax.org or call at (904) 280-8162.


Education contributions fund the extracurricular high school course Great Decisions and special student events. 



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.
