Thank you for your ongoing support to Atlas Corps! While there are many questions in the air related to the current state of government, Atlas Corps is proud that our Fellows, Alumni, and Host Organizations are getting things done. You, too, are getting things done through your contributions. In fact, I am pleased to share that we have four monthly donors and more than 100 donations received through GlobalGiving - thank you! Now, are you ready to give 30% more? In one week (Wednesday, October 23) is GlobalGiving Bonus Day. All donations matched up to 30%. You can keep building our global network.
As you may have read least week, Scott sent an email update about Getting Things Done, "At Atlas Corps, we are all about getting things done. No matter your politics or your perspective, we can all agree that the challenges of the world need great leaders to address them. I am proud that Atlas Corps develops leaders who get things done." In fact, in our first seven years, we have supported 206 Fellows from 54 countries who are getting things done.
Specifically, we highlight two of our Alumni inspiring impact on a global scale:
Thank you for providing the support to inspire these global professionals.
Next Wednesday, October 23, will you help "get things done" during GlobalGiving Bonus Day? Your contribution will be matched by 30% between 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT on 10/23/2013.
On behalf of Esther, Vithika, and all our Fellows, we thank you for being such valued members of our community!

Today, we announce the largest class of Atlas Corps Fellows EVER - Atlas Corps Class 13 and celebrate the achievement of 200 Fellows! In fact, Atlas Corps is now 206 Fellows from 54 countries and 109 Host Organizations. Awesome! The long-term impact of our Alumni is also possible because of the many opportunities received during the Fellowship. Just this week, I received an email from our Alumni Luckmore (Zimbabwe, Class 9, Host: MSI) who recently started a position with ActionAid Denmark. He shared, "I find myself appreciating the Atlas Corps training and network. It encompasses the big part of my work here. Every week, I meet the President, senators, representatives, diplomats, and I attribute my high level of professionalism to what I learned as a Fellow…." Well said, Luckmore! Thanks to all for inspiring this achievement.
Thanks for your support! Scott Beale, Founder and CEO P.S. Join us to welcome Class 13 and celebrate our 200 Fellow milestone during the Atlas Corps Go Global Gala 2013 (Thursday, September 5). In true Atlas Corps style, it will be a night of food, friends, and Fellows and we will also feature the GlobalGiving Foundation who is hosting two Fellows as part of Class 13!
