The Center for World Religions, Diplomacy, and Conflict Resolution relies on philanthropy to support all our interventions and fieldwork. Contributions help fund CRDC’s education programs, training workshops, back-channel diplomacy meetings, publication of op-eds, and other resource materials on religion in conflict.

Gifts to CRDC are received by the George Mason University Foundation and are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
