THE CIC STEWARDS’ CIRCLE
Stewards’ Circle members help to sustain the operations of the CIC – and its signature projects – across the country. Support at the $5000 donation level or higher means joining Chair Emeritus Bill Graham in his ongoing efforts to ensure that the CIC will continue to thrive well into the future.
YOUR CONTRIBUTION MEANS:
Throughout the CIC’s 93-year history, there have been individuals who’ve helped ensure that the citizen engagement vision of our founders has stayed front and centre through numerous political upheavals, economic challenges and other national crises in Canada.
Today, it is the members of the Stewards’ Circle who will help steer the CIC into the future by supporting both our core operations, and our aspirations.
We are pleased to issue an official tax receipt in the full amount of all Stewards’ Circle donations.
With gratitude and our heartfelt thanks, all Stewards’ Circle members are recognized in our Annual Report, and on our website.
Signature Program Support
Contribute to future initiatives based around the remarkable results achieved through our deliberative democracy exercise: Foreign Policy by Canadians, and other collaborations aimed at increasing citizen engagement across the country in discussions focused on Canada’s place in the world.
STEWARDS’ CIRCLE DONATIONS SUPPORT:
The lifeblood of the CIC are the individuals belonging to our 18 branches across the country. Members organize speaker and panel events and run student scholarship programs along with student-focused career events. Some branches conduct very popular student mentorship programs while others assist and fund student-run Model United Nations conferences. And all our branches work with local partners to ensure young Canadians will be well-prepared for the future.
NATIONAL EVENTS & OPEN CANADA
Online and in-person national high-profile events drive membership at the local level. Open Canada, our digital magazine, aims to engage Canadians from all walks of life in a discussion about this country’s place in the world.
FOREIGN POLICY BY CANADIANS
2021 saw us hold the largest deliberative democracy exercise ever held in Canada. In 2021-2022 we will be taking the results of this major undertaking and delivering our findings to audiences across Canada.
Our research fellows continually contribute to the existing body of knowledge on pressing foreign policy issues through publications such as the CIC’s ‘International Journal’.
