IIE Gala

IIE Gala Moving Image

Due to the pandemic, IIE will forego its annual gala in 2020.

Each year, the gala is a critical source of unrestricted gifts that IIE can use as needed to support our mission-driven work – such as providing emergency aid this summer to over 850 international students impacted by the pandemic.

In recognition of the fundamental importance of the annual gala, IIE’s friends and supporters are making contributions in lieu of the 2020 gala. Because they are making a gift without purchasing a table or tickets, these gifts are 100% deductible. And the CARES Act encourages generosity during the crisis by increasing the cap on annual giving, for this year only, to 100% of adjusted gross income.

Please consider making a gift in lieu of the 2020 IIE Gala. Sponsorship information can be found here.
