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 our 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. Also outside of Vienna, ICEP is present with events – for example in the Mönchsberg museum in Salzburg or in Steyregg Castle in Upper Austria.
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.
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.
This format represents 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.

Individual Empowerment Project
ICEP, together with its local partner organizations, is implementing long-term programs and projects that are organised in modules. The individual project modules are scalable and can often be adapted to the ideas of a company, a federation or a social association. In line with the ideas and interests of the organization, ICEP can conceptualize an attractive project in a development region starting with a certain project volume.
To assume responsibility in a tangible way
ICEP also supports you in internal and external communication of your commitment. As part of a project partnership, ICEP gives the opportunity to make global social responsibility specific and tangible to third parties.
More than donations
The benefit for people in developing countries is the most important part of a project partnership. However, ICEP offers companies even more: for example, development presentations for customers and employees, the design of Christmas cards, general communication work or the support of events.
With the project “VIVA mi escuela” – “Long live my school” – OMV has helped ICEP to improve basic education for thousands of children in Nicaragua. For three years, one cent per cup of VIVA coffee sold in Austria and Germany was contributed to the project.
With ICEP, Valartis Bank launched a charity at a polo tournament in Kitzbühel. This made it possible for ICEP to finance the establishment of a training centre for entrepreneurs in Nairobi as well as credit and training programs for young entrepreneurs.
The project partnership between Bank Gutmann and ICEP supports entrepreneurs in Africa and Central America year after year. The partnership with the project “Fondo-Gutmann” allowed the creation of three new village banks in Guatemala.
Workshop global CSR
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. In 2018, ICEP will again offer about 10 students 18 and older the opportunity to participate in an intensive preparatory course from March to June and to become involved in teacher training and instruction in Central America.
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.

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
I spent two months for ICEP in Kenya advising partners 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.Stefan Zündel
I will never forget this summer in Nicaragua! We were 9 ICEP volunteers and active around the clock and applied everything we had learned in the preparation when we implemented the training sessions. ICEP’s partner Fabretto took care of us very well and the family where I lived was incredibly nice to me.Laura Diethart
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 Nicaraguat.
All volunteers attend a 4-month preparatory course in Vienna. They learn basic didactic skills, the production of teaching materials and hold model lessons.
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.
ICEP’s partner for Educational Upgrading is Fabretto. Volunteers support Fabretto in the training of the teachers and in the classroom in several regions of the country.

Companies as corporAID partners
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.
