1. What does my gift support?

Until 2021, all gifts will support Inspiring Leadership: The Campaign for Salzburg Global Seminar, an $18 million fundraising effort that will propel our organization toward its next 70 years of impact.

Your gift helps us provide a safe, inspirational place for people from every sector, region, and background to engage around the world’s most challenging issues. 

While we seek grants from institutions and charge fees to those who can pay, donors like you provide a significant amount of funding needed each year to operate our programs and our organization. Gifts from individuals also support scholarships that ensure places for extraordinary young innovators and leaders in our sessions, regardless of personal circumstance. The fact is that donors like you provide the lifeblood for all we do.
