GMF does this by supporting individuals and institutions working on transatlantic issues–by convening leaders to discuss the most pressing transatlantic themes–and by examining ways in which transatlantic cooperation can address a variety of global policy challenges.
Founded in 1972 through a gift from Germany as a permanent memorial to Marshall Plan assistance–GMF maintains a strong presence on both sides of the Atlantic.
