The Inter-American Dialogue relies on the support of generous individuals, foundations, leading corporations, and governments who share our commitment to democratic governance, social equity, and prosperity in the Americas and who seek to advance cooperation among the countries and peoples of the Hemisphere. Donors provide essential operating revenue for the Dialogue’s activities and strengthen our capacity to carry out our ambitious agenda. They participate in our programs, inform our debates, enhance the impact of our work, and ensure that our research reflects a diversity of opinions.
The Dialogue’s Associates Program and President’s Leadership Council offers individuals a range of opportunities to engage in our research. Individuals can also support the work of the Dialogue by participating in special campaigns, like the Annual Leadership for the Americas Awards Gala or Sol M. Linowitz Forum, or by naming the Dialogue as a beneficiary of planned gifts such as bequests, retirement funds, and insurance policies. Visit our How to Give portal to make a contribution today.

The Dialogue is a non-partisan organization deeply committed to intellectual independence. While donors are encouraged to participate in our activities, funders do not and have never influenced our research or programs. Our directors, members, staff, and constituents represent many views and our funding sources are diverse. All contributions conform to the Dialogue’s internal donor guidelines and US tax laws. The Dialogue is transparent in listing all donors in our Annual Report and on our website. Additionally, 990s are readily available to any individual or organization upon request.
