Sponsor a Family Diplomat

Think family is important?  Then, help Learning Life give voice to families worldwide.

Across the world, families are widely valued, directly impacted by global trends and events, yet they are given little to no voice in the decisions of governments, businesses, media and nonprofits that affect their lives. Since 2016, Learning Life has been developing the Family Diplomacy Initiative (FDI), a grassroots, long-term effort to build a more peaceful, caring world by empowering families to participate in policy decision-making at local to global levels.

Yes, we’re ambitious, but we’re cost-effectively leveraging the power of family and the internet, and we’re making progress: we have over 14,000 people worldwide connected to FDI, and in 2022, we have begun training international family diplomats (FDs) online in citizen diplomacy, storytelling, and global family trends, patterns and issues to advocate effectively for families.

You or your organization can help by investing in family diplomacy training.  In 2022, it costs Learning Life an average of just $1,000 to recruit and train one FD.  Accordingly, here are the sponsor levels for organizations and individuals:


Gold ($5,000): Fund the training of 5 Family Diplomats

Silver ($3,000): Fund the training of 3 Family Diplomats

Bronze ($1,000): Fund the training of 1 Family Diplomat


Gold ($1,000): Fund the training of 1 Family Diplomat.

Silver ($500): Fund half the training of 1 Family Diplomat.

Bronze ($250): Fund a quarter of the training of 1 Family Diplomat.

All sponsors have the choice to sponsor and connect with a particular FD.  You can meet some of our FDs.  All sponsors are announced (unless you or your organization wish to remain anonymous) via Learning Life’s website, e-newsletter, and social media pages on Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter, reaching over 30,000 people worldwide, and become members of our Democracy & Diplomacy Community (DDC).  All sponsors also get invited to special international family diplomacy events, and have the opportunity to be profiled at Learning Life’s website.  Here is an example of a sponsor/stakeholder profile.  Sponsor contributions are tax deductible, except for $100 which pays for DDC membership benefits.  If desired, organizational Gold sponsors get more personalized and customized access to Learning Life’s large and growing network in metro Washington DC, and worldwide.
