The Global Awareness Fund was initiated by Rita McGaughey and funded through many other donors who shared Rita’s vision. The fund supports opportunities for expanding awareness of our multicultural world by helping individuals to identify with people from outside the United States. Grants are issued to organizations which sponsor short-term travel for groups, conferences or other initiatives that encourage a view of the world which goes beyond the familiar.
