The Annual Fund was launched in 2002 to encourage members and friends of Chatham House to make charitable donations to be used annually in support of the institute. You can see details of some of our past Annual Fund campaigns here.
Contributions to the Chatham House Annual Fund provide an important source of discretionary income as well as funding a specific project which is of benefit to future generations of members, speakers, staff and researchers. You can see a list of past donors in our annual review or online by year: 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008.
With your help, our ambition is to raise £100,000 to contribute towards the creation of the Julius Fellowship in International Economics.
This will honour the exceptional contributions Dame DeAnne Julius has made to the institute over the last three decades. As Chairman since 2003, and as Head of International Economics in the 1980s, DeAnne has played a key role in the institute's research and has also overseen a period of significant institutional growth.
The Julius Fellowship will nurture individuals from the next generation interested in developing solutions to the complex challenges of global economic interdependence. They will be selected from across the world via a competitive process.
Supporters of the Julius Fellowship will contribute to an initiative which will bring the policy-makers of tomorrow to London to enjoy a unique professional and learning experience. All donors will be acknowledged on our website and in the Annual Review.
If you wish to support this initiative, you can donate online or you can download a donation form.

This is an important time to foster thought leadership on international economic issues. In an era of ever-deepening economic interdependence, governments and societies around the world are confronted with the reality that they do not control their own prosperity and security, and yet the actions of one country can have significant impacts on the fortunes of others.
Working alongside the institute’s researchers, these Fellowships will strengthen the capacity for critical independent thinking and the ability to offer new ideas for policy-makers. They will also have the opportunity to enrich their perspectives through participation in the institute’s extensive programme of workshops, seminars and conferences, working with other visiting fellows and research staff.
The Julius Fellowship will form part of the institute’s wider aim to create an ever-expanding network of independent thinkers on international affairs. They will bring new international perspectives and voices to the institute and into Western policy and they will drive the debate of new ideas on international politics and global governance. The resulting alumni network of young professionals who share common perceptions and aspirations will be of great value to the institute in the long term.
