The George Family Foundation is committed to supporting the international think tank's growth and expansion through the Carnegie Endowment's New Vision plan. The Carnegie Endowment will grow and create active centers of research and sustained collaboration and dialogue in Beijing and Beirut. These centers will be supported by Advisory Councils comprised of business leaders and academics and will work in collaboration with the existing Carnegie Endowment centers in Washington D.C. and Moscow to establish a truly international collaboration.
After attending the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting in September 2006, the George Family Foundation explored ways to leverage their funds to maximize their impact toward the global conversation on world peace. As a result, the Foundation is partnering with other funders to support the Carnegie Endowment's New Vision Plan.
Founded in 1910, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is the premier public policy organization dedicated to advancing cooperation between nations and promoting active international engagement by the United States. Through research, publishing, convening, and, on occasion, creating new institutions and international networks, Carnegie researchers and scholars shape fresh policy approaches and ideas. Carnegie's work spans geographic regions, focusing on the economic, political, and technological forces driving global change. Its cross-sectional multinational, and network-building nature, together with the unrivalled expertise of its scholars, enables its findings and recommendations to reach diverse audiences, including policy makers, officials, NGOs and the media.
