Giving Support

GSPIA’s alumni and faculty have boldly tackled many of the seemingly insurmountable challenges of the last half century. Today, GSPIA seeks students who have the drive and passion to address the enormous challenges of the 21st Century. Likewise, GSPIA’s fundraising campaign, Build a Better World, seeks those who believe in and want to support a collective ability to build a better world.


Our goal of $15 million is both an ambitious and strategic one, developed after careful analysis of the factors critical to our mission. The goal is a realistic indication of the resources required to reduce the barriers to education faced by students who have the desire and intellect (but perhaps not the means), to succeed in GSPIA’s rigorous academic program. The goal seeks to counter the effects of increased competition faced by our faculty and institutes for research grants and foundation gifts. Finally, the goal reflects the financial benchmark necessary to secure GSPIA’s position among top-ranked schools of public and international affairs.

Your gift will ensure GSPIA’s continued commitment to prepare individuals to make important public contributions, to improve government, to increase the professionalism of public servants and to provide responsible leadership for future generations.

As development professionals, we respect your decision about when, how and why to make a gift to GSPIA. As representatives of GSPIA’s campaign, it is our privilege to answer your questions about giving to GSPIA, regardless of the size or timing of your gift. We appreciate the opportunity to work with you to create a giving strategy that best fits with your time frame, capacity and areas of interest.
