Individual Donors

Philanthropy does have an impact on the problems of armed conflict, huge as they are, and it does help resolve those problems. It is a powerful tool for making leaps toward a safer, more peaceful and prosperous world. At Crisis Group, our loyal individual donors form a cornerstone of our work: whether they give to help understand a fresh emergency on the ground, to support our dialogue and advocacy work or to sustain the field-based research undergirding our reports and policy recommendations, these gifts and grants save lives.

Our individual donors represent a diverse range of philanthropists, prominent business leaders, government officials, lawyers and scholars from around the world. They enjoy exclusive access to our Trustees and Senior Staff, through private meetings, invitation-only policy briefings, roundtable discussions, and evening receptions. These philanthropists are also included in our high-level bi-annual Board Meetings, where they are able to learn first-hand about the most recent developments in the sphere of global politics and peace and conflict.

Philanthropists for Peace

Conflicts continue to exact a terrible human toll, killing tens of thousands of people each year, driving millions from their homes and threatening famine and outbreaks of once-eradicated diseases. As of the end of 2019, an unprecedented 79,500,000 people around the world have been forced from their homes as a result of conflict and violence.

Yet philanthropy can be instrumental in helping prevent or resolve armed conflict. Whether you give to help understand a fresh emergency on the ground, to support our dialogue and advocacy work or to sustain the field-based research undergirding our reports and policy recommendations, your gifts and grants save lives.

In thanks and appreciation of our generous individual supporters, we offer recognition through our special initiative – Philanthropists for Peace and its three societies.

Women's Global Alliance for Peace

Fronted by Crisis Group’s Co-Chair and Former Foreign Minister of Argentina; President of GWL Voices Susana Malcorra, Trustee and former President of Liberia Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Trustee, former CEO of Save the Children International and former Prime Minister of Denmark Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Crisis Group has established a Women’s Global Alliance for Peace to bring together an international network of women philanthropists who share a desire for a safer, fairer and more peaceful world.
