Giving back - Help us to expand IAESTE
IAESTE is a non-profit organisation and has been providing young people around the world with work experience since 1948. As this year is our 70th anniversary we are looking back at all the lives that have been changed through an IAESTE internship and asking if those that benefited can help us to expand out mission into new countries and provide life-changing experiences to students in other parts of the world.
The way we do this is via our development fund. It is a fund with the sole purpose to help new IAESTE member countries to develop the programme at home. This is done in different ways, by helping new countries with the costs of attending our Annual Conference to gain knowledge on how to run IAESTE in their own country, by providing assistance with establishing the exchange administation process in-country, or being able to support countries according to their unique requirements on an adhoc basis.
We are asking you to support us by making a donation to the Development Fund. Any amount helps us, and in turn helps more young people around the world. There is no minimum donation, but for anyone able to support us with €50 or more, we would be happy to recognise that contribution through the presentation of an IAESTE Alumni Supporters pin.
Of course, giving back doesn't only have to mean financial support. Other ways of giving back to IAESTE include providing internships at your company or institution, or through supporting your national or local committees with your experience, resources or expertise. We are happy to receive all offers of support!
We keep all our supporters up to date with what their donations have been used for, so you will be able to see what your contribution has meant to the association and to the committees and young people it has benefited.
Donations are made via Paypal but you do not have to have an account to donate, you can use a credit or debit care, or contact us if you wish to use another method.
