Our Work Depends on Your Generosity
IIC offers a number of awards and prizes - some helping students and early career curators to get support for training and events, others to highlight some of the best work coming out of the profession. These funds are dependent on our members' generosity, often through adding an extra gift at the point of membership renewal. You can find out more about the opportunities you can provide on our Grants and awards section here.

How to donate
Members can log in to their accounts to donate. If you are not a member of IIC, but would like to donate to support the profession and the next generation, please get in contact with our office here for a further chat.
By becoming an IIC Gold, Silver or Bronze supporter, you are donating to the IIC’s Opportunities Fund. IIC's Opportunities Fund was established in 2010 to provide membership to institutions who cannot easily afford the annual subscription fees.
The Brommelle Memorial Fund was established in 1990 in memory of Norman Brommelle, who was Secretary-General of IIC between 1958 and 1988. The fund is used to provide assistance for students of conservation who are IIC members and wish to attend the Institute's International Congresses. Find out more here.
IIC Keck Award
In 1994, the IIC Council announced the establishment of the IIC Keck Award, generously endowed by Sheldon and Caroline Keck to commemorate their shared lives of distinguished achievement in conservation. The cash award is presented every two years at the IIC Congress
