Become a Monthly Sustaining Donor!

  • Members of the Philadelphia Council: $5/month minimum contribution
  • General Public: $12/month minimum contribution


We've enjoyed bringing our online programs to our local and national community over the past months—and now we are offering a better way to access those events, while also providing critical sustaining support for the Council and our mission of promoting global education and civil discourse among people of all ages.

Never Miss a Conversation

Instead of signing up and paying for each Council webinar individually, this automatically recurring gift will provide you with access to all of the Council's regular webinar events.  Sustaining donors will receive automatic registration for all webinars, like a subscriptionyou don't have to submit your information multiple times; we will do that for you!  Simply provide your information once, confirm your recurring monthly donation, and you will receive links to attend each of our regular webinar programs (excluding special hybrid events and fundraisers) right in your inbox as our events are confirmed and announced.

Existing annual members of the Council are able to access these webinars by adding a monthly gift of $5/month to their annual donation.  New supporters of the Council can become a sustaining donor and receive access to webinar events with a minimum monthly gift of $12/month.

Not interested in a regularly recurring monthly gift?  Tickets for individual webinars will still be available on an a la carte basis for $5 for Council members and $9 for the general public.

Shape the Next Generation of Global Leaders

Your monthly gift also sustains our most important work—our global education programs for middle and high school students.  Over the course of a year, one new monthly sustaining donor at $12/month can support 3 needs-based scholarships for students to participate in our annual International Student Summit for high school students!  At these programs, Philadelphia students from all backgrounds learn the critical thinking, cooperation, and dialogue skills necessary to become our next generation of global leaders.

If you are an Ambassador, Cabinet, Statesman, or Premier member of the Council, webinars are included with your giving level.  Please reach out to Logan Jones-Merrill at or 215-561-4700 ext. 221 for more information.
