Support IDS

Make a donation now

We transform knowledge, action, and leadership needed to build more equitable and sustainable societies where everyone can live their lives free of poverty and injustice. Our work has measurable, lasting impact but is only possible because of the donations and funding from those who share our commitment to making positive transformation happen – in our societies, economies, and environment.

We have two current appeals that you can donate to now:

  • IDS General Fund – Support our work to transform your world so that everyone can live secure, fulfilling lives, free from poverty and injustice.
  • IDS Scholarship Fund – Make it possible for a gifted scholar to realize their potential and bring about positive change in the hardest to reach parts of our planet.
