As a publicly beneficial non-governmental organisation; The IK Foundation has for over a quarter of a century worked within philanthropy! We have no public or regular funding but instead entrust ourselves to the four pillars of our organisation.

  • SELF FUNDING from subscriptions of books or possible surpluses from the sale.
  • PHILANTHROPY through donations of money, property, goods or services from private individuals, organisations and companies.
  • FUNDING AND GRANTS from scientific organisations, foundations etc.
  • VOLUNTEERING of project work and services.
The IK Foundation's independence, is fulfilled by its long term aspirations and a history of not having to rely on public funding, allowing us to build up a lot of trust amongst our financiers; including scientific foundations, organisations, governments, companies and private individuals.

We operate globally – with Field work, Research projects, Publishing, Exhibitions and the distribution of free open source material online such as The IK Workshop Society – all of which traverse both geographic as well as interdisciplinary borders.
As a not-for-profit organisation with high and long-term ambitions without any bureaucratic constraints, financial support is required on a regular basis. Through philanthropy, our long term mission can be developed, our belief being that everyone has the right to the access and the use of pure scientific knowledge within Natural & Cultural History.

Q

QUOTATIONS FROM
HENRY DAVID THOREAU
Regarding Philanthropy


Author, philosopher and
naturalist (1817 - 1862)

Be not simply good, be good for something.

Goodness is the only investment that never fails.

The Best thing a man can do for his culture when he is rich is to endeavour to carry out those schemes which he entertained when he was poor.

Philanthropy is almost the only virtue which is sufficiently appreciated by mankind.
