Do you accept donations from government?
We do not believe that genuinely independent charities should accept donations from governments. The IEA accepts no contract work, direct payments, or sponsorship from Government. Our events however are open to Government officials or representatives on the same basis as anyone else; and where we charge, for example, for publications or conferences these can be purchased on the same basis as anyone else. Like any other qualifying charity, the IEA benefits from reductions in some business taxes and from ‘Gift Aid’.
