The Wilson Center, chartered by Congress as the official memorial to President Woodrow Wilson, is the nation’s key non-partisan policy forum for tackling global issues through independent research and open dialogue to inform actionable ideas for Congress, the Administration and the broader policy community.
With experts in residence from around the world and a reputation for sound, unbiased and constructive thinking, the Wilson Center is able to convene preeminent leaders in the scholarly, business and government communities to connect the world of ideas with the world of policy. Additionally, through digital distribution outlets, including social media, the Wilson Center can reach beyond its walls to hundreds of thousands here and abroad, including decision makers at all levels.
As a living memorial to President Wilson, the Center receives an annual congressional appropriation that accounts for roughly one-third of our budget. In order to raise the remaining two-third of our budget, the Wilson Center relies on the support of the public. We ask for your help in supporting this critical mission.
The Woodrow Wilson Center is deeply grateful to the many foundations, corporations, and individuals who support our important work.
