Support Carnegie

Improving real-world outcomes is Carnegie’s business.

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is one of the world’s most highly regarded international affairs think tanks and the oldest of its kind in the United States. Three qualities have defined it over its history: excellence in scholarship, responsiveness to changing global circumstances, and a commitment to making a concrete difference in the world.

Ideas and analysis are valuable, but improving policies, decisionmaking, and real-world outcomes is Carnegie’s business. Today Carnegie has research centers in Moscow, Beijing, Beirut, Brussels, and New Delhi in addition to its headquarters in Washington, DC. As it enters its second century, the Carnegie Endowment is committed to building the premier global think tank by continuing its international expansion while maintaining the quality and coherence of the organization.

Carnegie is uniquely fortunate to be able to rely on its endowment, the legacy of Andrew Carnegie’s original 1910 gift of $10 million, to provide core funding for its programs. That funding, which covers close to 50 percent of Carnegie’s annual budget, ensures that scholars can maintain their independence and have the freedom they need to produce the highest quality work.

But Carnegie also depends on the generous support of people who value its mission and appreciate the quality and deep impact of its work. Carnegie is seeking to raise annual and program funds as well as new endowment as part of a unified campaign to complete its transformation into the world’s only global think tank.
