Charitable Giving

The Commission is an independent research charity. It has no endowment, and as such is wholly dependent upon financial support from donors. The costs of financing research, disseminating findings, and hosting debates are significant, and the Commission could not proceed without funding from the private sector.

Please consider supporting the Commission and our charitable work.

If you would like to support the valuable work of the Commission with a grant or legacy, please contact the ITC Director.
