Learn more about your impact

Sen. John McCain stood for freedom, human rights and the inherent dignity of each individual, regardless of their birth or circumstances. He also believed that public service, particularly service in support of national security, is a noble calling.

The McCain Institute's National Security and Counterterrorism program is committed to investing in the personal and professional development of the women and men who accept the call to serve in the national security arena. When you give to the program, you enable character-driven leaders to pursue a career in national security, where they can protect their fellow citizens and serve a cause higher than themselves.

The McCain Institute has identified shortfalls in prevention, intervention and rehabilitation work, particularly where the U.S. government has limited authority and has developed programming aimed at helping to fill those dangerous gaps. By engaging state and local governments and community organizations, the Institute is building a network of national leaders who can pave the way to reduce hate and extremism in their communities. Your gift to the National Security and Counterterrorism Fund enables this important work.
