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.

Throughout the year, CGD Society members receive advanced notice of the Center's public conferences and events and are invited to participate in informal, private briefings. These are unparalleled opportunities to exchange ideas and information with CGD experts, and with leading figures in international policy, business, NGO, and media circles. At the following levels, CGD Society members also receive:

  • $150 – quarterly President’s update weekly; CGD newsletter; premier event invitations; recognition on CGD’s website
  • $500 – all benefits at the $150 level; complimentary copies of CGD published books
  • $1,000-$4,999 – all benefits at the $500 level; acknowledgment in CGD’s annual report; invitation to a private CGD event and reception and listing as an event sponsor
