The ICOMOS Victoria Falls Fund
Established in 2003, the Victoria Falls Solidarity Fund allows to support the attendance at ICOMOS events of colleagues facing financial difficulties, in particular General Assemblies.
It complements any external support received through a major international foundation.
The Fund is mainly financed through voluntary contributions by members, but it can also accept public or private donations. Each year, National Committees are encouraged to fundraise for the Fund when invoicing members for their annual dues. In addition, many colleagues who provided expert reviews in the context of ICOMOS’ consultancy work for the World Monument Watch List are encouraged to donate their review fees to the Fund.
The Fund is managed by the International Secretariat so as to ensure its neutral and equitable use, under the supervision of the Board, and according to established criteria. The International Secretariat keeps detailed administrative and audited financial records of the use of the Fund and reports annually to the Board and the donor Committees.
Please help ICOMOS achieve its fundraising objective to double the number of colleagues supported at next year's 20th General Assembly in Sydney, Australia.
