Foundations Award American Diplomacy
Two Operating Grants

Recent grants from two philanthropic foundations have enabled this journal to expand its operations, enrich its offerings, and reach a much broader online audience.

  • The Mary Duke Biddle Foundation of Durham NC awarded the journal $3,500 in September 1999 to defray costs of advertising its site to potential readers and upgrading its Internet connection.
  • The Nelson B. Delavan Foundation of Washington DC contributed $10,000 in December 1999 in recognition of the journal's efforts to improve understanding of “the important role of diplomacy in America's national interest.”

The Board of Directors of American Diplomacy Publishers (the journal's parent organization), together with its Editor and Publisher, take this opportunity to express their special gratitude to both benefactors for their confidence in American Diplomacy. Their donations—along with those of many individual readers—have literally made it possible for the journal to survive and renew its commitment to better understanding of diplomacy's importance to international relations.

Since then, the original site has been expanded and completely redesigned. Now located at www.aafsw.org, the site is more attractive, easier to navigate, and quicker to download.
