Thanks to the generosity of our donors, IIE is taking action to respond to critical needs in education. Your support sustains our work and enables us to provide emergency help to students and scholars from countries in crisis, increase opportunities for young Americans to study abroad, and increase access to higher education for women.

We are committed to the highest standards and best practices in nonprofit management and in managing our growth. IIE is recognized regularly by charity rating agencies and publications, including GuideStar, Crain's New York Business and the NonProfit Times for its growth, efficiency and dedication to mission. For the eighth year in a row, Charity Navigator awarded IIE four out of a possible four stars for excellence in non-profit management. Only 2% of charities have received at least eight consecutive 4-star rating, indicating that IIE outperforms most other charities in America.

Our careful and effective use of your donations – fully 94 percent of which go directly to fund our program services – ensures that your financial contribution will have a direct impact on the issues that concern you most.
