The Polish American Freedom Foundation (PAFF) was established by the Polish-American Enterprise Fund, following the Support for the East European Democracy Act passed by the U.S. Congress in 1989. The Foundation, which is governed by an independent Board of Directors, launched its operations in 2000 with a double mission: to help consolidate the results of the Polish transformation nationally and to share the Polish experience with other post-communist countries in the region. Since 2000, the Foundation has spent over $120 million on its activities (thirty programs have been implemented) and the assets of the endowment exceed $250 million. The Leaders of Change Foundation co-organizes WEASA on behalf of the Polish-American Freedom Foundation.
The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) strengthens transatlantic cooperation on regional, national, and global challenges and opportunities in the spirit of the Marshall Plan. GMF does this by supporting individuals and institutions working in the transatlantic sphere, by convening leaders and members of the policy and business communities, by contributing research and analysis on transatlantic topics, and by providing exchange opportunities to foster renewed commitment to the transatlantic relationship. In addition, GMF supports a number of initiatives to strengthen democracies. Founded in 1972 as a non-partisan, non-profit organization through a gift from Germany as a permanent memorial to Marshall Plan assistance, GMF maintains a strong presence on both sides of the Atlantic. In addition to its headquarters in Washington, DC, GMF has offices in Berlin, Paris, Brussels, Belgrade, Ankara, Bucharest, and Warsaw. GMF also has smaller representations in Bratislava, Turin, and Stockholm.
