Support Our Pivot to Online Programming

In a video message, Salzburg Global President & CEO Stephen L. Salyer on how our organization is weathering the COVID-19 crisis

The following text is an edited transcript of the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwTGPgxot7I

It's quiet here today at Schloss Leopoldskron, but we remain very busy. 

Max Reinhart's library is my favorite room in the Schloss, maybe my favorite room in the whole world. We make magic here and as a Salzburg Global Fellow, you know that. We cherish this place. And we are committed to being hard on issues but kind to each other. 

For 73 years, Salzburg Global has inspired creative thinking and collaborative ideas across borders of all kinds. But the COVID crisis disrupted international travel and made it difficult for us to have in-person convening. 
Salzburg Global pivoted quickly online to engage thousands of Fellows across the world. Let me give you a few examples:

Our programs depend not on government support, but on grants, fees and individual gifts. Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron also helps support our nonprofit activity. 

Still, program postponements and hotel closures have hurt us this year. 

We need more than ever for those of you who value all we do, to step forward and support our work. So whether you're a regular supporter or considering making a gift for the first time, please let us hear from you today. And be as generous as you can. 

Thank you. Stay safe. And keep the spirit of Salzburg Global Seminar with you throughout the year.
