Support Carnegie


Contributors & Funders

Carnegie Endowment’s mission, dating back more than a century, is to advance the cause of peace through objective analysis and development of fresh policy ideas, and direct engagement and collaboration with decision-makers in government, business, and civil society. Carnegie Endowment is an international organization of policy research centers operating as one closely knit network.

Carnegie Endowment is a public charity with diverse sources of funding. Roughly half of its annual budget comes from income from its own endowment set up by Andrew Carnegie in 1910. The remainder comes from external sources; primarily foundation grants. The foundations that support Carnegie are required to make public the full description of their grants, including grant amount, period of years, and purpose. That information is available on the foundations’ websites and IRS Form 990s. The balance is from individuals, corporations, and a variety of governments. Carnegie does not engage in lobbying of any kind in any country and has no associated 501(c)4 organization. It does not bid for contracts or accept funding that has any quid pro quo attached.

We are very grateful to the following public and private sources from 2007 to the present that have provided generous financial support for our mission and respected Carnegie’s outstanding reputation for integrity and independence.
