Foundation Support

The French-American Foundation works closely with, and benefits from, the generosity of multiple grant-making organizations.

The French-American Foundation serves as a forum for networking and discussing matters of relevance to the United States and France. The Foundation convenes conversations and promotes policy discussion without taking a specific policy stance on an issue. Through conferences, fellowships, and study tours, the Foundation creates opportunities for French and American leaders to come together to examine today’s most pressing issues and learn from each other’s experiences.

Partnership with the Foundation is an opportunity to shape important conversations, research, and policies relevant not only to the French-American relationship, but also with potential for greater application and impact. Programming is based on a variety of important and timely policy issues including economics, education, defense and security, media, foreign policy, immigration, sustainability, education, and more. Foundation partners are invited to join the French-American Foundation in its efforts to effect change in an area of mutual interest.
