We are thrilled to announce that Greif will be matching any donations to the Columbus Council on World Affairs dollar for dollar, up to $50,000. Donate today and your gift will be matched—having a double impact—to support CCWA’s Global Scholars Diploma program. The Global Scholars Diploma program provides high school students with an early opportunity to develop the skills and mindset to be successful global leaders, no matter their future path in life. Through cross-cultural interactions, exposure to diverse and interesting career paths, and understanding pertinent global issues, Global Scholar students become more aware, engaged, and civil global citizens.
“I started to understand how it might feel to be a refugee. The role-play activity was really hard for me, but I get to go home, safe and sound, at the end of the session because it wasn’t my real life. For a lot of other people, it is real life, and they don’t even have a home. I want to know what I can do to help and make things better.”
As a one of CCWA’s new Mission Partners, Greif shares the Council’s passion for global education and increasing global awareness in central Ohio. Their global footprint is vast, expansive, and reaches a variety of countries and cultures all across the world. Their partnership with CCWA is one that brings deeper unity between CCWA’s local mission and many connections across the globe. Greif’s support and matching contribution challenge has already shown a deep commitment to the work that CCWA does, but also their commitment to creating a community of global, civil citizens across our region. Greif’s influence will have a flowing effect into our community through our student program and other educational programming.
