The ICDP Foundation is a registered Australian charity established in 2020 to support development initiatives in the Pacific, including projects in education, cultural preservation, health and the natural environment. It is currently working to secure approval as an ‘Approved Organisation under the Australian Overseas Aid Gift Deduction Scheme’ through the Australian Government.
We support initiatives and programmes that aim to,
- Increase young people’s access to high-quality tertiary education and job opportunities,
- Promote opportunities for Pacific Island girls and women,
- Build capacity and drive enduring social change in the Pacific.
For more information on the Foundation, including the Board of Directors, please consult the flyer here.
The ICDP Foundation was launched to a select audience of business, government, not-for-profit and academia leaders in December 2020. Senator the Hon Simon Birmingham, then Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment and Minister for Finance, spoke about the opportunity for the Foundation in a pre-recorded Keynote Address. You can watch the launch below.
To ensure projects are delivered, the Foundation is seeking donations from individuals and companies across the region. These funds will be used to create a range of endeavours across the Pacific in collaboration with our local partners.
