ICEP Charities

ICEP charity events combine good entertainment with social commitment. The success of ICEP charity events is based on the fact that many people are generously and selflessly committed to our development work. Many great artists – musicians, singers, painters, sculptors, comedians, entertainers – have already supported ICEP and provided memorable evenings. Thousands of guests accepted our invitations in the past few years and have not only enjoyed a full entertainment program in traditional spaces such as the Cabaret Simpl, and historic buildings such as the Post Office Savings Bank, but their donations also make our work possible.

Revenue for development work

The proceeds from events will wholly benefit ICEP’s development work. This is possible thanks to our generous corporate sponsors, who assume the costs of the events.

Best of ICEP Charity

The range of ICEP charity events goes from art shows to charity evenings in exclusive locations to concerts in the splendid House of Industry or in the legendary Cabaret Simpl.

Charity auction
In cooperation with Sotheby’s, art has been a tradition at ICEP since 2003: Then, the first charity auction took place at the Garden Palace Liechtenstein with Andrea Jungmann.
Charity at the Cabaret Simpl
Strong voices, outstanding musicians and great entertainers were on stage in the Cabaret Simpl over the past few years to support the development work of ICEP.
Charity in Jeans
The Charity in Jeans represents musical enjoyment in a casual setting. Whether jazz or Latin rhythms – it provides a relaxed mood and an entertaining evening, which invites you to network and dance.

Would you like to provide us with a nice location? Or donate a picture for our art auction? Do you have the opportunity to actively help at charity events? Or do you have any suggestions or ideas that can help us? I look forward to your contact!

Social Impact Project

ICEP seeks to collaborate with companies that have global value chains and activities in emerging and developing countries or that want to engage with them – and that proactively address the impact their business has on the people there.

Leverage through public funding

Companies are a strong partner for development cooperation – the Austrian Development Agency therefore supports business projects with a broad impact. ICEP supports companies that are seeking ADA-supported projects in emerging and developing countries, from concept development through grant application to semi-annual reporting and preparation of external audits. During project design and implementation of projects in emerging and developing economies ICEP builds on a multi-stakeholder approach, contributing with holistic consulting services as required by the company.

Assuming global responsibility

ICEP also supports companies in the internal and external communication of their commitment. As a collaboration partner, ICEP offers a variety of opportunities to assume global social responsibility and how to make it tangible to third parties.

Partner for projects with social impact

ICEP has already developed and implemented numerous social impact projects in cooperation with Austrian companies – the success speaks for our approach.

Qualification of skilled workers
ICEP accompanied RHI Magnesita in the development and implementation of its Youth Employability Program, which systematically improves technical vocational training at RHI sites in Mexico and Turkey.
Implementation of standards
ICEP advises Agrana on the implementation of sustainability standards in its supply chain. In Mexico, the production conditions of the strawberry and mango farms were improved and certification became possible.
Development of new markets
ICEP supports the Tyrolean hearing implant manufacturer MED-EL in measures to improve the diagnosis and rehabilitation of hearing impairments in developing countries – e.g. in Bangladesh and the Ivory Coast.
You are a company and are considering a social commitment? I would be happy to develop a project proposal in the field of Global Poverty Reduction and advise you on how to involve clients and staff in such a project.

ICEP offers opportunities for volunteering, where an identified need in development work can be matched with the skills and resources of a volunteer. Operations can be carried out in the area of organizational development or training of trainers.

Volunteering in schools in Central America

In 2013, with the support of the pedagogue Verena Chavanne, ICEP launched a successful volunteer program, which teaches open learning to teachers in Nicaragua and Guatemala.

Corporate Volunteering

More and more companies worldwide rely on company volunteering programs as part of their CSR strategy and support the voluntary commitment of their employees to various initiatives in environmental and social areas. ICEP will be happy to receive inquiries from companies who wish to be advised on the planning and implementation of such programs in a global context.

Sally, textile cleaner

As an expert for visionary processes, I have once accompanied the ICEP team once to Kenya and once to Guatemala. There, I held seminars for ICEP partner organizations. They were interesting and intense days that contributed a lot to and benefitted the participants, but also myself.

Lydia van der Brugge Angerer

FranklinCovey Leaders

I spent two months working for ICEP in Kenya, and I have been advising partner organizations on strategy development. I knew that kind of work from McKinsey, it was just in a completely different environment and for a good cause – an enormous experience. And a good feeling later hear how much Imani benefited from my advice.

Summer engagement

In 2013 ICEP, with the help of pedagogue Verena Chavanne, started a volunteer program for students to teach methods of open learning to teachers in Guatemala and Nicaragua.

Training course in Vienna
All volunteers attend a 4-month preparatory course in Vienna. They learn basic didactic skills, the production of teaching materials and hold model lessons.
Engagement Guatemala
Volunteers are employed by the ICEP partner organization Fundap in the western highlands. They help teachers to make their teaching methods and teaching materials more effective.
Engagement in Nicaragua
ICEP’s partner for the Educational Upgrading Program is the local NGO Fabretto. Volunteers support Fabretto in the training of the teachers and in the classroom in several regions of the country.

corporAID platform

The corporAID platform promotes general awareness regarding the role of companies in global development and the positive perception of the international commitment of corporations. And it supports companies in shaping globalization responsibly.

Corporate corporAID partner

ICEP wants to make a difference with corporAID. And every corporAID partner helps us to do more. In addition to the financial aspect, the platform must also be as broad as possible. Each Austrian flagship company also contributes an additional impetus in networking and important expertise in know-how exchange within the platform itself as well as with national and international experts.

Multiplicator for business & development

Even if you are not a company, you can support the corporAID platform: by recommending our events and publications and by distributing the corporAID magazine. The more readers are reached with sound information, concrete examples and the identification of economic opportunities for all, the better.
