Friends of the British Council

The Friends of the British Council is an independent non-profit organization created to support British Council programs globally and work with the British Council’s partners. It is a separate entity from the British Council, but the organizations share the same values, mission and priorities.

The mission of the Friends of the British Council is to support the work of the British Council, by creating international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries, and building trust between them worldwide.

We invest in and strengthen the transatlantic relationship for the future, building trust and creating international opportunities for the UK and the US to work together on shared agendas in the US, the UK and the rest of the world. With US partners, we support and facilitate the development of British Council programs in education, society, arts and English to create opportunities for people to learn, share and connect.

The relationship between the Friends and the British Council is an innovative model of integrated partnership work. It combines the expertise of the Friends in US grant management and relationship-building, with the British Council’s expertise in cultural relations, and the creation and delivery of large-scale global programs and international networks.

The Friends of the British Council is registered in the United States as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
