Type of SupportGeneral Support/Organization
This grant to the Center for U.S. Global Leadership will support the organization’s continued efforts to build strong, bipartisan support for effective U.S. investments in development and diplomacy. Over the next two years, the Center will focus on three core objectives: 1) ensure that the next president and key administration officials will consolidate the gains that have been made, particularly with respect to improving the effectiveness of foreign assistance; 2) build bipartisan support in the 113th Congress for a smart power agenda that seeks to position aid reform as part of the solution in a time of government austerity; and 3) protect the international affairs budget. In pursuit of these objectives, the Center for U.S. Global Leadership will continue to mobilize business leaders, military voices, and development practitioners to make the case for smart, sustained investments in development and diplomacy.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support
The Center for U.S. Global Leadership works to create an environment in which policymakers and opinion leaders recognize that U.S. investments in development and diplomacy are cornerstones of an effective U.S. foreign policy. Its goals over the next 18 months are to ensure that recently announced reforms result in a stronger U.S. development program and to protect resources in the international affairs budget that will allow civilian agencies-primarily the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development-to do their work effectively. The Center promotes these goals by creating a broad consensus among representatives of the diplomatic, defense, and development communities.
