THE 1946 SOCIETY IMPACT
We have more than 50 members now, each of us donating $1000 annually. That $50,000/year gives us a reliable base of financial support for such chapter lead programs as Fulbright in the Classroom, Fulbright Service Corps, and Fulbright Forum. You can help us make Fulbright’s voice heard in communities across the country.
