International Churchill Society
The International Churchill Society is a non-profit organisation dedicated to studying the works and life of Sir Winston Churchill, and acts as a proponent of the former Prime Minister’s legacy and vision for the free world.
As Chairman of the Society, Laurence Geller is responsible for organising and arranging the events and activities of the Society, which ranges from conferences to charitable dinners, and often includes debates, seminars, and lectures surrounding the history and beliefs of Sir Winston Churchill. Geller is one of the largest donors to the International Churchill Society; he donated $1m in 2015 in order to digitise the Winston S. Churchill archives. Laurence ensured that, through the creation of learning modules tailored to each geographic region, the resulting documentation was freely available to educate school children on an international scale.
Recent activities that Laurence has organised in his role as Chairman include the presentation of the Sir Winston Churchill Leadership Award to Prime Minister Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine in 2022. This was awarded on behalf of the Society by former Prime Minister Boris Johnson of the United Kingdom, in recognition for Zelenskyy’s courage, dignity, and heroism he has displayed during his leadership of Ukraine.
