Our Funder

With the generous support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation is committed to supporting civil discourse, civic engagement, and informed leadership, and believes that educational institutions have a crucial role to play in each.

A Note from Co-President, Mr. Dracopoulos:

The concept of ‘paideia,’ of educating young people not only to become successful professionals, but also active and engaged citizens, who are part of something greater than themselves, has particular resonance today. We are excited to partner with the University of Pennsylvania in helping educate citizens who will contribute to—and have faith in—fair and thriving democracy.
