Become Part of IIE's Future

You can help build a secure foundation for IIE's future by making a planned or deferred gift. Thoughtful benefactors like you have supported IIE since 1919. For 100 years, IIE has been steadfast in its belief that international education makes the world a more just and productive, less dangerous place. Join IIE's Centennial celebration and empower IIE to continue its work for another 100 years by pledging a deferred gift.

When you notify us of your gift in writing, you also become a member of the One World Legacy Circle.

Wise Giving

Through a planned gift, you can create a legacy and make a meaningful, long-term impact on IIE – maybe even a greater impact than you thought was possible. Planned gifts come in many forms. They enable you to provide a future benefit to IIE while meeting your current personal, financial, and philanthropic goals. At the same time, a planned gift can offer you and your family significant tax benefits, greater financial flexibility, or income for life.

Planned Gifts Include:

Bequests (through wills or living trusts)

Retirement plan assets

Life insurance

Charitable trusts

Planned gifts may be designated for a particular program or purpose, or they may be unrestricted, allowing IIE to respond to opportunities or address needs that cannot be foreseen today.


Bequests are the simplest and most common form of planned gift. Leaving a bequest to IIE can be as straightforward as including this paragraph in your will:

"I give, devise, and bequeath the sum of $____________ or ______ percent of my estate to the Institute of International Education, a nonprofit institution incorporated in the State of New York with the tax identification number 13-1624046, for its unrestricted use and purpose."

One World Legacy Circle

The One World Legacy Circle welcomes forward-thinking friends who support IIE through their estate or other planned gifts. You become a member when you notify us in writing that you have included IIE in your philanthropic plans.

Society members receive invitations to special events, updates about IIE, opportunities to share their story, and recognition in select IIE materials.

When you become a member, your generosity will help inspire others to give and to share your pride in securing IIE's future. If you prefer, your gift may remain anonymous.
