Named for one the first editors of National Geographic magazine, the Grosvenor Council is a group of unwavering supporters who have partnered with the Society to ensure a lasting impact on the world. Grosvenor Council members generously support the National Geographic Society’s work at the cutting edge of science, exploration, education, and storytelling.
