Thank you for supporting Giving Tuesday!

We're bringing you some positive news for the start of the year with an update on Icon's recent fundraising.

On 1 December 2020 Icon participated in Giving Tuesday. Together with your help we raised £1,783.75 that will go towards strengthening the conservation community and helping emerging professionals. The donations surpassed our initial target and we will now be able to allocate 28 sponsored memberships this year. 

Your donations will allow us to sponsor 25 students and 3 international associate members this year. We will work with our Diversity and Inclusion Task and Finish Group to develop appropriate selection criteria for student memberships and use UN criteria to award international ones. 

Icon thanks you for your donations and continued support. We would not have been able to reach such a result without your participation and shares. 

Please contact Yulia Gladshteyn at if you have any questions or would like to learn more about the campaign. 

We’re here to make a positive change for the things we value. Members are the foundation of our efforts so join us today to help us ensure cultural heritage is cared for by fully qualified and capable professionals.
