Member Partnerships

"UGI is committed to supporting the communities we serve through charitable giving and active support from our team members. Our employees are at the core of our giving efforts, as they volunteer their time and energy to a wide range of initiatives."
John Walsh
President and CEO, UGI

UGI and the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia are partnering to give rare educational opportunities to the public.

UGI Corporation has joined the Satell Institute Collective Force as a founding corporate member by making a four-year pledge to the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia. The World Affairs Council of Philadelphia is dedicated to informing and engaging people of all ages on matters of national and international significance. The World Affairs Council makes it possible for people to be in the same room with national and global leaders you normally only see on television or read about. The Council’s Speaker Events program gives Philadelphians a low-cost opportunity to gain first-hand insight into the most critical issues of the day in an intimate personal setting with the people who are shaping the world.

UGI Corporation has supported the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia in a number of different ways. UGI President and CEO John Walsh is the Chairman of the Board Emeritus for the World Affairs Council. UGI has also sponsored or co-sponsored many speaker events for the World Affairs Council, including a few of the Stan and Arlene Ginsburg Family Philanthropies “Great Debate” Series, which is another initiative that is part of the Satell Institute Collective Force. 

“We hosted debates before, but it was not institutionalized. Now that we have reliable long-term funding, we can schedule several Great Debates a year that explore the most pressing and vexing public policy questions facing our nation and the world. We can determine topics we want to cover, and think of them as a series rather than individual events. It strengthens our cause and thought-leadership reputation, and ensures there is a forum for audiences to decide for themselves.
