The Iwaya Fund is an independent non-profit that serves as a vehicle for donations to any donor-designated Ikebana International chapter, ikebana schools, study groups, or related organizations. Financial support is provided by public donations and by dividends from the Endowment Fund. The Iwaya Fund, established in 2006, has no paid employees and is staffed solely by volunteers.
As a non-profit, the Iwaya Fund is dependent on public funds. All donations to the Iwaya Fund, either designated or undesignated, are tax deductible [IRS 501(c)3]. Designated donations are accepted for ikebana organizations such as Ikebana International Chapters, ikebana study groups, or ikebana conferences. Iwaya forwards one hundred percent of the designated funds.
