The Center needs charitable contributions to support all of our interventions. These contributions are tax deductible as provided by both Federal and State tax laws. Gifts to the Center are processed through the George Mason University Foundation, an independent 501(c) (3) organization. Your donation helps fund the Center’s education programs, back-channel diplomacy meetings, and publication of white papers and other resource material on religious conflicts.

Checks should be made payable to the George Mason University Foundation. The check must be marked “For the Center for World Religions, Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution (CRDC)” in the notes section in order for the funds to reach us. The check itself can only be made out to the George Mason University Foundation, and the notes section must mention only the Center for the World Religions, Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution, not any specific country or cause to which you want to direct these funds. On a separate note accompanying the check, feel free to say which fund, cause, or activities you are most interested in supporting.

Funds and Endowments:
The center invites partnerships with foundations or individuals in the creation of targeted funds and endowments that support the Center’s work. Funds and endowments could support such programs and projects as:

  • Interfaith Fund for Women and Girls at Risk
  • Citizen Diplomacy Seminars
  • Middle East Peacebuilding
  • Cultural and Religious Sensitivity Trainings
  • Interfaith Peace and Justice Initiative

Funds or endowments may be named by agreement between the donor and the University. Such gifts may bear the donor’s name or be named in honor of a family member or friend. Gifts in support of the Center for World Religions, Diplomacy, and Conflict Resolution may be tailored to reflect the donor’s interests and tax situation. Memorial and living tribute opportunities also can be arranged.

If you are interested in discussing targeted funds or endowments, call or email Michelle Everson at or 703-993-4473.
