Support Cultural Vistas

Make Your Donation

Our work is about empowering people to drive positive change in themselves, their organizations, and society. We make this possible by creating international professional experiences that cultivate more informed, skilled, and engaged citizens.


Cultural Vistas warmly invites you to make a generous tax-deductible contribution in support of this important work.

Our programs are pivot points in our participants’ lives. Our alumni report that their exchange was one of the most important factors in their personal and professional success, consistently describing their experience as life-changing.

Your thoughtful gift will help make these transformative experiences possible for as many as 6,000 students and emerging leaders, ages 15 to 50, from 130 countries each year.


Giving Opportunities

Your gift in support of Cultural Vistas’ mission and programs is sincerely appreciated. In spring 2016, we are leading two special campaigns, in which we warmly invite you to participate.

  • We encourage your thoughtful support of a Cultural Vistas Fellowship in memory of Tom Hagemann, a Robert Bosch Fellow, who recently passed away in fall 2015. His close friend and cohort member, Henry Ramos, is seeking donations for the Tom Hagemann Cultural Vistas Fellowship.
  • We also seek support for a CBYX Fellowship, a six-month internship dedicated to strengthening connections between alumni and their emerging regional groups, participants, and hosts. If successfully funded, a recently returned CBYX for Young Professionals participant would be eligible for a funded, six-month full-time internship 2016-2017.

This year as every year, you may also contribute directly to the Cultural Vistas Scholarship Fund, which provides needed stipends for young Americans going abroad, many for the very first time.

In 2014, for instance, we provided $52,000 in scholarship support to 40 Americans pursuing low or unpaid internships abroad. Of our programs for U.S. participants, 85% are partially or fully funded.

Gifts of $200 or more are accepted to the endowed Scholarship Fund, while donations below that amount will be made available to participants within 18 months of the contribution.

If you wish to honor or recognize a loved one, you also have the opportunity to establish a named fund or donate in their name. To learn more about how your donation makes a real difference, visit our most recent annual report and audited financial statements.
