Council Membership

Join our Leading Group of Philanthropists

Relief International’s Council comprises our leading donors, a group whose generosity equips us to respond nimbly to breaking crises and urgent development challenges.

We offer Council members exclusive access to our organization and field-based experts.

Members can engage in substantive exchanges with our teams as they confront fast-moving humanitarian emergencies. They are invited to members-only events and receive updates from field staff.

At the highest levels, Council members are invited to travel to our program sites to see the impact of their support firsthand.

Donations from the Council support our mission to serve the world’s most vulnerable people and are tax-deductible in Belgium, France, the USA, and the UK.

Testimonials

The Power of Philanthropy

council-1-230819.jpg

“The positive impact Relief International has on the lives of people in truly urgent situations is remarkable. When I traveled with their CEO to Cox’s Bazar, I saw firsthand how their interventions to support Rohingya refugees are efficient, effective, and sustainable. It’s an honor to serve on the Board and to associate our family’s philanthropy with this important work.”

Daniel J. Bader

President and CEO, Bader Philanthropies (Milwaukee, Wisc.)
