IABC Foundation

Supporting the profession

Dating back to 1982, the IABC Foundation was established as a charitable, not-for-profit organization with a mission to support strategic initiatives that advance the practice, perception and effectiveness of the communication profession across the globe. Over the years the Foundation has supported both small and large projects, moving the profession forward through research and education.

A commitment to giving

More recently the Foundation has gone back to its roots to put the focus on giving back to the profession through philanthropic initiatives like the extraordinary Gift of Communication program, featured at the 2015 World Conference. Giving back to the profession — that’s where we’re headed and we invite you to come along.
