Thank you for supporting the iCare Travel Foundation and its programs that uplift the lives of the world’s less fortunate.

There are many ways you can donate. Please click on the options to the right to learn about them.

Among our more popular options are donations towards an iCareShare travel philanthropy experience that is part of your upcoming trip to one of our Featured Destinations.  Another is giving further support to a project or cause at a destination you have already visited.

We are also fortunate to receive donations from people who do not participate in trips, but simply want to contribute to the success of our organization and its programs.

Please leave us a message by clicking the Questions | Comments box below. Let us know how to apply your donation, and if it is a recurring gift (monthly, yearly).

Thank you! We will be in touch.

  • Donate Towards Your Experience

    Put away money now for your upcoming vacation and iCareShare experience. $1,000 maximum. Choose from among our Featured Destinations, and choose a way to help. You will have one year to take your trip.

  • Support Your Past Project

    Past iCare travelers have expressed a desire to continue supporting the cause or issue they helped on a previous iCare vacation. We are happy to provide you with a means to do this.

    You will receive correspondence from the recipient(s), sent with expressions of gratitude.

  • Support an iCare Cause or Issue You Care About

    If you see a cause or issue in our Wish Lists that moves you, you can help without traveling to the destination. As our administration costs are covered by our for-profit business iCare Travel, you can feel confident that your donation goes directly to that cause or issue.

    You will receive correspondence from the recipient(s), sent with expressions of gratitude.

  • General Support for iCare

    This may not seem the most glamorous of donations; however, it is most vital.

    Most travelers are unaware of travel philanthropy–that they can take a vacation and make a difference along the way. Promotion of iCare’s way of doing travel philanthropy requires a tremendous marketing and Public Relations campaign across several media sources. We compete with major travel companies and their large marketing budgets. Our challenge is not small.

    In addition, we are constantly working to expand our Wish Lists into other destinations where help is greatly needed, and where iCare travelers may be willing to go.

    We are very grateful for this kind of donation.

  • Corporate Gift Matching

    You may be able to take advantage of matching gift programs to offset your iCareShare program cost.

    Even if your own employer doesn’t offer such a program, you may still be able to take advantage of a program as a spouse, retiree, or friend who’s employed by a company that does. If you think you can take advantage of corporate gift matching and would like our assistance, please let us know.

  • Gift Planning

    Through the Foundation, you can make a life-altering difference for an individual, cause, or community, year after year, long after you leave. Through financial instruments such as trusts, annuities and bequests, the Foundation can help you provide for a cause or issue that you care deeply about.

    Through a bequest to the Foundation, you can create a perpetual, living legacy that will help the cause, individual(s) or community you care about, so that they survive, or even thrive, into the future.

  • Stock Donations

    Stock donations are tax-deductible and provide crucial assistance to our iCareShare program. When you transfer
    ownership of securities to the Foundation, you receive a charitable income tax deduction for their full market value,
    and you incur no capital gains tax (subject to IRS deduction limits).

    We do not hold stocks or invest in the market. Your donation is sold immediately to provide the resources needed to take care of our program and those individuals, causes and communities involved. You can feel confident that each stock donation has an immediate and lasting effect on improving the lives of those we support through iCareShare

  • Frequent Flyer Miles

    Always a great gift! We fly annually to our Featured Destinations where we have our Wish Lists and nonprofit partners. We also fly to locations where we promote travel philanthropy, and, we would like more resources to fly to new destinations to expand our Wish Lists, where future iCare travelers can go and make a difference.

    Frequent flyer miles are greatly appreciated.
