The Stanley Foundation is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, private operating foundation. Foundation programming is focused on promoting and building support for principled multilateralism in addressing international issues.

From 1980 to 2004 the Stanley Foundation produced Common Ground, a weekly radio program on world affairs. Former Common Ground co-hosts Kristin McHugh and Keith Porter are coproducers of "Security Check: Confronting Today's Global Threats" along with Simon Marks of Feature Story News.

"Security Check: Confronting Today's Global Threats" is the foundation's sixth radio documentary. The foundation released "UNderFire" in June 2004, "Children of War" in March 2003, "Ten Years After the Soviet Collapse" and "Can This Be Democracy?" in December 2001 on the 10th anniversary of the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the "The Struggle for Iran" in January of 2001 to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the release of the American hostages from Iran.

In spring 2000, the Stanley Foundation partnered with American RadioWorks™ to produce the two-hour radio documentary Revisiting Vietnam.
