As we think about welcoming Class 34, we also reflect on the past year. Overall, 2018 was an inspiring, yet challenging year. We engaged 82 new Fellows—including 52 women as part of our empower women globally theme in 2018 (60% of our Fellows are female!) and we partnered with 44 new Host. Our 700+ community of Fellows and Alumni are impacting thousands of people around the world. Yet, we’ve also been hit hard by cuts in government funding and unexpected expenses.
Will you give a special additional gift before the end of the year in honor of Class 34?
If you believe in global engagement and if you want to support diverse social change leaders, then please invest in Atlas Corps today.
