Academy Funds

The Academy maintains several funds that support Academy activities. The funds are used for the general operation of the Academy, long term fund development, and an endowment for general operating expenses.


  • Benchmark Fund - These funds are used for long-term fund development.
  • General Fund - The Academy will put your money to use where it is needed most - the operations of the organization. This donation gives the Board of Directors the greatest discretion in allocating the funds.
  • Planned Giving - Contact the Executive Director for more information and a brochure.
  • Science Endowment - Funds from this endowment are used to supplement the IAS general operating expenses. Only the income from the funds is used.
  • Other - Maybe you have an idea for another way to use your donation. Contact the Executive Director.
