Eisenhower Fellowships is a 501(c)(3) organization funded almost entirely through private contributions, including an endowment accrued over the years.


Contributions from our generous donors fuel our programs, support the dynamic Fellows we host each year and strengthen the diversity of our personalized programs that address the issues most important to you, your family and our society.

Eisenhower Fellows and the positive impact they have on their societies are at the heart of everything we do. We bring together innovative leaders from all fields and regions of the world, individuals with a track record of notable achievement who have the potential to do even more. EF’s influential global network consists of more than 1,600 active Fellows in government, business, civil society, health, science, technology, education, the arts and journalism from 115 countries. We strive to ensure the professional, ethnic, racial, gender and geographic diversity of the Fellows and of the regions and nations where we operate.

The most challenging global issues of our time require relationships of trust that stimulate dialogue, promote the exchange of knowledge and break down barriers. In a deeply divided world, fostering partnerships and multi-disciplinary approaches to problem-solving drive innovation and help scale local solutions to address regional and international issues. Eisenhower Fellows are catalysts for positive change who roll up their sleeves and work across borders and cultures. By supporting these diverse, dynamic doers, you can help address society’s most pressing challenges. At this critical moment in the world, our work and our mission have never been more vital or relevant.

Planned gifts build EF’s endowment, providing much-needed annual revenue and maximizing the impact of our Fellows, influential leaders who are catalysts for positive change. By supporting these dynamic leaders with a planned gift, we can help address society’s most critical challenges, now and into the future.

One of the easiest and most popular ways to make a planned gift is to include Eisenhower Fellowships in your will or living trust. You can name EF as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, or life insurance policy. There are other ways to structure a planned gift that provide tax benefits, income to you and your family and ensure flexibility if your financial circumstances change. No matter what the size, your planned gift to EF indicates your dedication to our work and that of our extraordinary Fellows.

Eisenhower Fellowships’ endowment assets are invested and managed to secure our organization’s future. The endowment allows us to expand our programs, extend our mission, and support our network of international leaders.
