About IFES’ 35th Anniversary

In 2022, IFES is celebrating its 35th anniversary. IFES was established in 1987 to address a gap in U.S. democracy assistance by providing highly specialized, technical support to election management bodies. Today, increasingly complex threats by malign actors and authoritarian regimes have fueled the need for ever more nimble and creative strategies, approaches and partnerships. IFES has risen to the challenge, growing into the global organization it is today with programming that advances election integrity, responsive governance, inclusive participation and technology for democracy. Since IFES’ founding, we have worked in developing, backsliding and mature democracies in more than 145 countries.

About IFES’ Democracy Awards

IFES’ Democracy Awards honors the unwavering commitment to democracy of former IFES Board of Directors Chairman Charles T. Manatt. The IFES Charles T. Manatt Democracy Awards highlight the fact that the work of safeguarding and advancing freedom and democracy transcends political parties and national borders. Each year, IFES honors three inspirational leaders with this award – a Democrat, Republican and member of the international community – who embody IFES’ vision of democracy for a better future.
