Giving to the IB

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit foundation that offers four high quality and challenging education programmes for students aged 3 to 19.

Through our programmes, we aim to help schools prepare students for life in a globalized society, developing citizens who will create a better, more peaceful world.

To help us do this, we receive donations from IB friends, alumni, and parents. This ensures the greatest number of students can enjoy an IB education, regardless of circumstance.

Why you should donate to the IB

Contributions are incredibly valuable to the IB. Through donations from others, we can help to:

  • empower our youth to shape solutions to the world’s most complex social challenges
  • conquer the personal barriers to education that IB students and families face
  • offer security and continuity in times when academic programmes may be threatened.

Gifts help us strengthen and extend our programmes. The research they enable has led to a number of innovations, ensuring that we continue to lead in international education.
