"People have the inherent ability to change themselves and their local and global communities." —Stanley Foundation's Core Values
Through Community Partnerships, the foundation acts locally while thinking globally. We promote global education and serve the community, being valued as a "good neighbor" in Muscatine, the surrounding area, and Iowa in general.

For projects in and near our hometown of Muscatine, Iowa, contact Jill Goldesberry.

Current Work

The Earth Awareness Portable Classroom offers a unique experience to all who step inside it. Foundation staff give presentations in Iowa and the immediate Quad Cities area. These offer students the chance to experience geography in a new way, focusing on physical aspects of each continent as well as including genteral math skills.

The foundation partners with local schools to provide resources and learning opportunities for teachers and students. Local educators are offered an opportunity to study and travel internationally through The Catherine Miller Explorer Awards.

The foundation partners with other Iowa institutions to provide various international events/conferences, such as Iowa Student Global Leadership Conference. Former participants of this conference produced an informational brochure for international visitors and hosts.

We also partner with community organizations to provide educational opportunities in our local community.

Stanley Foundation Annual Conferences Stanley Foundation Annual Conferences
The Stanley Foundation holds two annual conferences, UN Issues and the Strategy for Peace Conference. These bring together experts from the public and private sectors to meet in a distraction-free setting and candidly exchange ideas on pressing foreign policy challenges.

Divided into roundtable talks, the cutting-edge discussions are intended to inspire group consensus and shared recommendations to push forward the debate on the foundation’s key policy areas.

Nuclear Security Video Nuclear Security Video
The Stanley Foundation produced a 13-minute video looking at what needs to be done to stop terrorist groups from acquiring enough fissile material to make a bomb. The foundation talked with over a dozen diverse and distinguished experts from the Nuclear Security Governance Experts Group and the Fissile Materials Working Group to see how today's patchwork of voluntary arrangements can be forged into a long-lasting system.
