Special 2022 Ukraine Fund to Support IACC member UBI Conference Hall Staff
The IACC global community stands strong to support the team and their families working at the UBI Conference Hall, in the capital Kyiv in the Ukraine.
You can make a personal for member donation through IACC’s GoFundMe page here.
By supporting the IACC Foundation, IACC members and IACC friends individual donations, venue fundraising and fundraising at IACC events in the US, Europe, Canada, Australia and Asia, will be making a difference for those in our community in desperate need of support.
Your donation to the IACC Foundation will go to the families of the staff at UBI Conference Hall. Any money raised that cannot be distributed in this way will be donated to help UNICEF ensure that Ukraine’s children have access to safe water, nutrition, health care, education and protection. Less than 3% of UNICEF funds go to administrative costs.
IACC formed the Better Tomorrow initiative in 2021 with the aim to bring together a global community committed to being socially responsible and making a positive impact by setting the highest standards in the meeting industry. IACC will create the opportunity to take responsibility to improve our efficiency, reputation, legacy and environmental impact through our social practices that focus on three main pillars: People, Community and Environment.
We worked to find and secure service organisations that aligned with IACC’s mission and would assist in the betterment of the future through “giving back”.
We wanted to align our initiative with charities that have a “connect” to the industry of Hospitality and Events and support their root causes. It was also of extreme importance to select organisations that possessed the priorities of current and prevalent themes of today’s world.
Through this process, we recognised that it was important that charities possessed an international recognition so that every IACC member would have a better understanding and connection with the organizations and their initiatives.
We are pleased to announce that through this initiative we have agreements in place with the following charities;
- Search Foundation
- Diversity Ally
We look forward to working with these charities and their initiatives throughout the year and collaborating together to support IACC’s mission.
