Over the course of the National Committee’s 50th Anniversary year thus far, many old and new friends have contributed to our work. We will be periodically updating this page to feature some of the gifts that are helping us expand and enhance our current programs, articulate our vision for the future, and launch new initiatives.
The Committee is grateful to Evan G. Greenberg, chairman and CEO of Chubb and vice chair of the National Committee's board of directors for an anniversary pledge of $1.35 million. Evan led the effort that inspired three other companies to pledge an additional $2.25 million in this initial phase of our anniversary fundraising. (The National Committee’s anniversary year officially ends in June 2017.) Chubb’s contribution will support a half-dozen programs over the next three years: a track II dialogue with leading economists from both countries, a groundbreaking study on China’s investments in the United States, our Young Leaders Forum that brings together talented and creative under 40 leaders in various fields from America and China, our Foreign Policy Colloquium that introduces U.S.-based Chinese graduate students to American foreign policy, our annual gala, and seed funding for a new program focusing on the younger generation of Chinese and American political leaders.
“In a globalized world, the face-to-face interaction offered by these programs is still the best way for both sides to understand one another and cooperate on issues that affect both countries and the world,” said National Committee President Stephen Orlins. “The leadership role that Mr. Greenberg and Chubb are taking will allow the National Committee to continue and expand its work during its second half-century.”
