Inspiring Leadership - The Campaign for Salzburg Global Seminar

Announcing our $18 million campaign to increase scholarships, develop new programs, and preserve our historic home

Today, we proudly launch Inspiring Leadership: The Campaign for Salzburg Global Seminar. 

With the goal of raising $18 million by 2021, Inspiring Leadership is our largest-ever fundraising campaign. 

This ambitious effort will enable Salzburg Global Seminar to expand our scholarships, invest in innovative new programs and secure this organization and our historic home of Schloss Leopoldskron for future generations. 

“Our programs have for 70 years changed lives, influenced policy and provoked innovation… Inspiring Leadership — with the goal of raising $18 million over three years — will propel Salzburg Global to increase its impact across the world,” said Salzburg Global President and CEO, Stephen Salyer.

“Salzburg Global Fellows and partner institutions have the power to transform systems and shape a better world. Our work includes reimagining education for a next generation of workers, catalyzing equitable development in rapidly urbanizing societies, ensuring equal protection for LGBT people and communities facing marginalization, and much more. 

“We invite all those who share our vision to join in Inspiring Leadership. Ask how you can become involved, and help us ensure Salzburg Global Seminar sustains courageous, ethical action to shape a better world.”

Chairman of the Salzburg Global Seminar Board and early supporter of the Campaign, Victoria Mars added: “This Campaign marks an inflection point in Salzburg Global’s extraordinary history, and I hope you will join me in helping to propel this bold and important organization toward its next 70 years of outsized impact.”

Our Campaign priorities – People, Passion and Place – reflect our both our long history in challenging current and future leaders to shape a better world, but also our long-term commitment to build upon this momentum of innovation and partnership to develop and motivate the next generation of problem-solvers our world requires.

By investing in people and increasing scholarships, we will ensure diverse voices and rising stars, regardless of financial means, can participate in our programs.

By investing in passion and developing new programs, we will empower our Fellows to find bold and collaborative solutions to the world’s most pressing issues.

By investing in place and preserving our historic home, Schloss Leopoldskron, we will sustain its spirit of openness, trust, and inspiration for those who will gather here to shape a better world.

In today’s turbulent times, the world needs the kind of leadership we inspire – now more than ever. Inspiring Leadership is a call to action. This Campaign is an invitation to help take this bold organization to new heights. Together, we will expand our impact and inspire the thinkers, doers and leaders who will shape creative, sustainable and just change for generations to come.
