The 1946 Society is a Giving Program honoring the founding year of the Fulbright Program. The Fulbright Association established the 1946 Society in 2015 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Program. Members enjoy exclusive benefits that include event invitations, behind-the-scenes access to prominent Fulbrighters, and high-level recognition at events. Join the 1946 Society to support academic exchanges and the Fulbright Association’s mission to advance international understanding. 1946 Society members do this work through donating, $1946 in their first year, and $1000 every subsequent year.

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.
