Partners Council Logo

The Center for Global Development’s community of investors plays a crucial role in our efforts to discover and promote practical ways to reduce global poverty and inequality and to make the world a more prosperous, just and safe place for us all. Our impact relies on the individuals and corporations who join in our deliberations and support our work.

The Partners Council is a non-governing membership body whose participants help us through financial contributions, by attracting other potential supporters, and by serving as advocates for CGD's mission in their professional and social communities. Members are highly respected citizens of the world who value being engaged in global development.

Through private breakfasts, access to senior fellows, policymakers, and more, members have the opportunity to meet leading figures in development and gain new insights about the issues of the day. Members bring valued resources to CGD, through their social and professional ties as well as through their philanthropic commitment to our work.
