Campaign to Secure Our Future

AIMING HIGH. THINKING BIG.

The Scholars & Scholarships Campaign Goal Is: $100 MILLION

Thanks To Our Generous Donors We've Already Reached: $76 MILLION

The Aspen Institute has set four major themes for the Campaign that are at the heart of our mission: Arts & Culture; Open-Minded Discourse; Values-Based Leadership; and Diversity & Innovation. From these major themes we have identified ten specific funding priorities for the Scholars & Scholarships Campaign, which are listed below. Campaign gifts will be used primarily to create scholarships and fellowships for innovative and diverse leaders, expand signature programs, and support policy work across the Institute.
