Robina Foundation Gives $10.3 Million to Council on Foreign Relations
The Minneapolis-based Robina Foundation has announced a five-year, $10.3 million grant to the Council on Foreign Relations in support of the council's efforts to foster international cooperation.
The grant will be used by CFR to expand its International Institutions and Global Governance (IIGG) program, the launch of which Robina supported in 2008. The program focuses on the institutional requirements needed for effective multilateral cooperation in the twenty-first century.
Since its founding, IIGG has mapped the landscape of international bodies through its interactive multimedia resource, the Global Governance Monitor, and has educated domestic and foreign publics about the role of the United States in sustaining robust multilateral institutions. IIGG has also produced more than twenty reports on institutional reform priorities and has provided policy makers with concrete recommendations related to more effective management of the world's most pressing problems.
