Ideas to Action:

Independent research for global prosperity

CGD Society

Invest > CGD Society

CGD Society members share a commitment to a better future for people in the developing world. Our supporters are well-informed professionals, policymakers, advocates, students and other citizens who value independent, rigorous research and active engagement in the policy process and who understand how much can be accomplished through policy change. Society members gain preferred access to the Center's public conferences, events and informal meetings. These are unparalleled opportunities to exchange ideas and information with CGD experts, and with leading figures in international policy, business, NGO, and media circles. Society members also receive copies of select CGD publications throughout the year. To join, we ask Society members to make a gift of $150 or more to help defray the costs of our high quality outreach activities and publications.

For a limited time, current students who are invested in the Center's mission now have the opportunity to join our Society at a discounted rate. To join, click on the CGD Society (Students) option here. For more information, please contact Anna Moran.

As highlighted in the map below, CGD society members hail from all over the globe. Please click through this interactive feature to see which countries our past and current Society members represent.
