Ambassadors Circle

The Ambassadors Circle was founded by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter to honor the vision and generosity of individuals who support the Center's work with unrestricted gifts of $1,000 or more annually.

Ambassadors Circle members play a critical role in helping the Center wage peace, fight disease, and build hope. Members enjoy a unique relationship with the Center and receive invitations to exclusive events such as the Center's Executive Briefing and Presidential Reception, which includes first-hand reports from our senior experts. President and Mrs. Carter attend to personally thank members for the work they make possible.

Your membership gift makes a direct impact as The Carter Center pursues urgent, global priorities. Whether you join at the Emissary, Envoy, Diplomat, or Cabinet level, your generosity will enable us to take immediate action to help people build healthier, more peaceful futures for themselves and their children.


Give Confidently
The Carter Center is committed to being a trustworthy steward of your generous contributions. In the 2011-2012 fiscal year, 89.8 percent of all donations went directly to our peace and health programs worldwide. The Center has a four-star ranking from Charity Navigator and an A+ ranking from the Better Business Bureau. Read our latest annual report (PDF) >
