Philanthropic Issues

The IK Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit organisation, without religious or political ties. This unique independence, coupled with clearly defined goals, allows IK to promote and manage high-quality projects. Our autonomy allows us to discover and channel untapped energy in a manner that unites and encourages investments for promoting natural and cultural history.

When coupled to high quality objectives and long-term thinking, this independence makes it possible to create new and unique philanthropic investment opportunities. IK Foundation's long history of not having to rely on public funding has created a lot of trust amongst many financiers, including scientific foundations, organisations, governments, companies and private individuals.

However, as a not-for-profit organisation with high and admirable ambitions, financial project support is frequently required. This can be in the form of grants (funding), donations (funds and property), sponsoring (funds and services) or voluntary work and bequests (funds and property).

By ordering books, fine prints, subscriptions and other practical and beautiful accessories and clothes directly from The IK Shop, you will help to finance the work of the IK Foundation. Place orders for family and friends, and why not donate a book to your local library or school? The ways to promote natural and cultural history are many...

The IK Foundation has as its constant objective the creation and completion of important projects within a given time frame with limited resources. In order to ensure the best possible use of available funds, IK continually works to steer clear of bureaucracy and to ensure that its work is environmentally friendly and financially sound. All project related income is allocated to a specific project - there are no deductions.

If you are interested in supporting the work of the IK Foundation, please contact us. Confidentiality and discretion are guaranteed.

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."
