Giving to the International Communication Association


We would like to thank you for considering a donation to the International Communication Association. ICA is a not-for-profit that relies primarily on membership and conference fees and publication royalties for its income. Although ICA has been doing well financially in recent years, the organization needs to look toward its future. In doing so, ICA hopes to establish the resources necessary to pursue the Association's mission. Your donation enables ICA to achieve the purposes of:

  • Providing an international forum to enable the development, conduct, and critical evaluation of communication research;
  • Sustaining a program of high quality scholarly publication and knowledge exchange;
  • Facilitating inclusiveness and debate among scholars from diverse national and cultural backgrounds and from multi-disciplinary perspectives on communication-related issues;
  • Promoting a wider public interest in, and visibility of, the theories, methods, findings and applications generated by research in communication and allied fields.

The ICA Executive Director is always available to discuss giving options. Gifts can also be listed as "anonymous" if you wish to maintain privacy. Please note: Donations should be in US funds.
