Global Ties Detroit is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that connects Detroit to global leaders through international exchange programs administered on behalf of the U.S. Department of State. Our mission is to promote citizen diplomacy - the concept that individuals have the opportunity to shape international relations, “one handshake at a time."
Each year, Global Ties Detroit coordinates exchange programs for hundreds of international visitors in every field - from the arts, economic development, politics, religion, urban planning, youth activism and more - introducing them to the unique city of Detroit, its citizens, and its resources through meetings with their professional counterparts and social and cultural activities with local volunteers.
Global Ties Detroit needs your support to continue providing meaningful cross-cultural exchanges to our international visitors! Here's what your donation means to us:
$25 Donation: Sponsors a Detroit Public School student's attendance at a Global Ties Detroit diplomacy summit
$50 Donation: Funds a Delegate Dinner, an opportunity for a local homestay family to host a delegate in their home for a meal
$100 Donation: Supports the #GlobalHangout initiative, which gets young Detroiters involved in civic engagement and international relations
