In 2020, the World Affairs Council of Atlanta celebrated
10 years of connecting Atlanta and the World. 
To celebrate this milestone, we made December our #GivingMonth and set a goal to raise $10,000 - #OneThousandForEveryYear.
Thanks to YOU and the Council Board, we met our $10,000 goal! 
Our Board has challenged us to raise another $10,000. 
They will continue to match every donation
You do not have to be a Council member to make a gift. 
We've organized 70 programs since March 2020 with over 6,000 attendees.
Just $2 from each attendee, will help us surpass $10,000.
Were you one of the 6,000+ attendees?  
Your support is what will help us organize another 70 programs with the speakers you want to see. 
Special thanks to our participating  Board Members:

Bernard Taylor (Chair), Joseph Bankoff, Eric Joiner, Dennis Lockhart

Jim Reed, Jag Sheth, Rohit Verma, and Kathy Walters.

Thank you for your support!
