What Can Your Donation Do?

At the Melton Foundation, we derive our strength from an experienced, diverse, and talented pool of individuals who together define the contours of our community. Our network is ever-evolving, backed by our Fellows who carry on the legacy of collaborations across boundaries. Your donation will not merely be an investment; it is an act that carries with it the significance of giving back to years of work to advance Global Citizenship and create a better future for all. Read on to know how your donation impacts our organization and our Melton family! All proceeds from our fundraiser go towards these programs:

Global Citizenship Learning Program

The Melton Foundation’s Global Citizenship Learning Program is a Fellowship Program we offer for university students who aim to emerge as Global Citizens. Each year, we recruit fresh students across six countries and five continents. Our Fellows emerge as global citizens with an acute awareness of the needs of the 21st century and the required skill set to contribute to a sustainable future.

#100Acts of Global Citizenship

Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world! #100Acts of Global Citizenship unite individuals around the world to make a small but meaningful difference on issues their communities face. Fellows identify problems in their neighborhood and devise context-based solutions that address the problem from the grassroots.

Deep Dive

The Deep Dive is one of the Melton Foundation's signature programs. Fellows “dive in” to specific local contexts to help tackle a local community’s problem through their expertise and knowledge. At the same time, Deep Dives give Fellows true in-depth insight into that community, as well as an experiential understanding of the local manifestations of a global problem!

Global Citizenship Conference

The Global Citizenship Conference (GCC) is a unique event that provides tools and resources to promote global citizenship as a way to work together to solve today's challenges around the world. Each year, the Melton Foundation hosts a seven-to-ten day series of activities focused on Global Citizenship. The conference convenes about 100 Melton Fellows, faculty from participating universities, and leading Global Citizenship advocates, practitioners, and experts

Global Solvers Co-Lab

Launched in 2018, the Global Solvers Co-Lab convenes emerging leaders from across sectors and geographies to learn, collaborate, and co-create meaningful solutions to advance Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on a local level with the global context in mind. Participants join forces to gain a deeper understanding of these SDGs, explore how they intersect and develop strategies to mobilize communities.

Fellows Speak

In addition to making physical conferences a possibility and providing tools and resources to propagate Global Citizenship, your donation enables our global citizens to realize their dreams and initiate ripples of change that create waves of impact around the world.

"I could not feel more inspired to watch Fellows keep the Melton Foundation’s mission alive during 2020. In times of need, uncertainty and deep change around us, we found new ways to help each other and our communities. I simply never stop learning with this family. My aim is to keep on supporting Fellows with all the knowledge, creativity and compromise the Foundation has always inspired in me." - Isabel Jaki, Melton Fellow

" Recently, I had the opportunity to reflect on my association with the Melton Foundation spanning across a decade and on what lies ahead for the Foundation.It was wonderful to see that, despite the unusual circumstances of the year gone by, MF has continued its work with the launch as well as funding of many new projects across the world"

Vigneshwar Shankar, Melton Fellow since 2010, India
