Carnegie Endowment receives $11 million grant from Carnegie Corporation to expand global reach

Carnegie Corporation of New York has awarded the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace (CEIP) a $10 million five-year challenge grant to expand the think tank’s international presence.

CEIP, headquartered in Washington, has centers in Moscow, Beijing, Beirut and Brussels and is planning a new center in New Delhi, India.

“This generous gift of the Carnegie Corporation of New York is a hugely important kickoff to our ambitious development plan,” said CEIP president Jessica Mathews, in a statement.

An additional Carnegie Corporation grant of $950,000 was awarded to CEIP to expand the think tank’s development office.

The Carnegie Endowment will seek support from foundations, corporations and individuals to match the challenge grant.

According to CEIP, the Corporation has awarded $30 million to the Endowment over the last 25 years.
