Library Donations

IICAH is actively seeking donations for the Institute’s preservation library; a recent list of the library’s holdings can be found on the Institute’s LibraryThing web page. Shipping library materials to the Institute is slow but secure; the Institute is next door to the central post office. Please send book donations (wrapped thoroughly) using the US Postal Service (book rate) to:

Direct Gifts

Making a monetary gift is simple. Just visit UD’s easy on-line giving form. Please be sure to allocate your gift to Art Conservation - Iraq Institute in the “Other” box. Many companies match gifts of their employees. This is a great way to double or even triple your gift. Check with your company’s Human Resources department or visit our on-line database a to find out if your employer matches gifts. For additional information, please contact the Office of Annual Giving or call toll-free at 866-535-4504. You may send checks to the Office of Annual Giving, University of Delaware, 011 Hullihen Hall, Newark, DE 19716.  Please indicate Art Conservation-Iraq Institute in the note section of your check to assure your gift is allocated correctly. 

Student Scholarships

Iraq's heritage specialists are eager to take advantage of the educational opportunities offered at IICAH, which are not available elsewhere in Iraq or the region. However, they all hold institutional positions in their home cities, where their salaries are needed to support their homes and families. Without assistance to cover their living expenses while they are away in Erbil, these professionals are unable to afford to attend the IICAH programs. Scholarship support to cover daily food and incidental expenses while participants attend the IICAH programs is urgently needed. Any donation amount is welcome; a gift of $3000 will support one student's living expenses at the Institute for a full year! The scholarship announcement flyer is available here​. 

Checks should be made out to The Walters Art Museum, with "Packard Fund—Iraqi Students" designated in the lower left. Please include a brief cover letter stating your intention to donate to educational expenses for Iraqi conservation students. You will receive a thank you letter from The Walters and your entire contribution is tax deductible. Please send scholarship donations to:
