2023 was a successful year for fundraising among IFYE Alumni and friends of IFYE in our 75th year of IFYE (1948-2023). This donor roll includes the recurring/periodic giving, grants, memorials and in honor of individuals, conference donations, CLUB 75, 75th Anniversary and Celebration donations, and other donations that helped support our IFYE program. 

These contributions play a major role in sustaining the IFYE program and allow us to continue to provide today’s young adults with a valuable and unique experience in international understanding and global awareness. 

It is with a deep sense of gratitude that we share our heartfelt Thank You to all who contributed this past calendar year. We hope that you will continue to help sustain IFYE with your annual contributions and encourage other IFYE alumni and friends of IFYE to do likewise.
