Honoring a family member or friend

If the number of Father's Day ties you have given over the years is beginning to be staggering, perhaps it is time to consider another type of gift: an investment in the future of our nation and world.  To learn more about giving to IWP in honor of a loved one, please contact Travis Rumans at trumans@iwp.edu or at (202) 462-2101.  You can also donate online and specify in whose name you would like your gift to be in the "Additional Comments" area.   

A matching gift

Many companies sponsor matching gift programs and will match donations made by their employees or spouses to qualified institutions. Some companies will double or even triple the match amount.

Contact the Human Resources department at your workplace to see if they participate in a matching gift program. If they do, let the HR department know and they will give you the necessary paperwork to complete. Follow the procedure according to the policy at your workplace and send in the form, as well as your gift, to:

The Institute of World Politics
Office of Institutional Advancement

Washington, DC 20036

In-kind contributions

The Institute welcomes in-kind contributions such as research materials for its Library, information technology equipment, frequent flyer miles, and historical works and artifacts.  Please contact Kathy Carroll at carroll@iwp.edu

Especially helpful are: 

Library books
Maintaining and enhancing the Institute's library resources is an ongoing task. The specialized nature of our library's collections - concentrated in security studies, diplomacy, communications, international studies, and intelligence - demands constant investment in new books and monographs, together with the need to maintain subscriptions to the foremost journals of these fields.

Gift cards
