Support IIE's Scholar Rescue Fund
Today, the undeniable and alarming truth is that there are more threatened and displaced scholars than ever before. And the number is growing. When repressive regimes or extremist groups aim to consolidate power and suppress any form of dissent, scholars are often the first to be targeted. They face censorship, wrongful dismissal, harassment, imprisonment, and worse.
IIE-SRF offers aid to threatened scholars—from any country and any academic discipline—so that they can escape danger, relocate to a safe country, and quickly re-establish themselves as teachers, researchers, writers, and intellectuals. We give them fellowships, place them at host universities, and provide them with essential support before, during, and after their fellowship.
With your help, IIE-SRF can save more lives and voices. Together, we help protect each scholar’s innovative ideas and rich body of work. Sharing this valuable knowledge with colleagues, students, and the world can contribute to a better future for all of us.

I want to support IIE:
Tax Incentives for Charitable Giving in 2021
Congress has recognized that the gifts generous donors make to nonprofits are an essential way everyone can help in this crisis. You can help IIE support students and scholars while saving on your 2021 income taxes.
For those who don’t itemize their taxes: You can deduct up to $300 per taxpayer ($600 for a married couple) for charitable contributions.
For those who do itemize: You can deduct up to 100% of your adjusted gross income (AGI) for charitable contributions.
As always, you should consult your tax advisors. IIE does not provide tax advice.
