CIERP Funders

Together, research grants and gifts make up nearly 90% of CIERP’s operating budget. In addition to the grants that support the research mission of the Center, we gratefully acknowledge the generous gifts from our donors, which allow us to provide financial support for student travel, internships, and events.

To make a gift, visit the Fletcher giving page, select the area “Other,” and type in “CIERP” to be sure that your gift goes directly to support CIERP’s initiatives.
