I got to know ICEP through the corporAID magazine and I am pleased to see that this is a strong impetus from a genuinely Austrian private initiative. A strong team is committed to global poverty reduction. This is definitely worth my support! Ingrid Moser


When making a donation, one also has to consider effectiveness. This is the great strength of ICEP: projects are carried out with partners in the respective country of development – therefore, donation funds to ICEP lead to high impacts on site. Martina Postl


I visited some ICEP projects in Kenya a few years ago. I was already a donor before this trip, but since then, I have been giving with the deep conviction that the work of ICEP is having an impact and changing things. Combating global poverty is a huge issue. Thomas Plötzeneder


You are interested in the development work of ICEP and would like to donate? If you need a donation confirmation or if you have any questions about the deductibility of donations or the donation process, please contact me – I am looking forward to it! Marijana Lacarak

Charity Events

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 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.

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 in the 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
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.
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! Julia Weninger

Project partnership

ICEP is looking for companies, associations or service clubs that are committed to global development and want to implement an individual empowerment project.

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.

OMV Viva – „Coffee with MOREvalue“
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.
Valartis Bank – Charity Polo
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.
Bank Gutmann – Mikrofinance
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.
Are you a company thinking about a social commitment? I would be happy to make a proposal for global poverty alleviation and to advise you on how to involve customers and employees in such a project. Astrid Taus

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Nicaraguat.

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 in 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 Educational Upgrading is Fabretto. Volunteers support Fabretto in the training of the teachers and in the classroom in several regions of the country.

Volunteering with Impact

corporAID plattform

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.

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.
