Your World Affairs Council is a nonprofit educational organization (a 501c3 tax exempt charity) that does not receive government support. It relies on you to become members and make charitable gifts to pay its bills — the hundreds of dollars to bring global affairs speaker to the community, the thousands of dollars to fund the WorldQuest academic program for high school students, etc. etc. etc.
Periodically we pass the collection basket so you, stakeholders in global literacy among our fellow citizens and future leaders, can help us help the community to know what’s going on in an increasingly complex world.
So, why should you support global affairs awareness programs in Nashville? If you don’t, who will?
