ICD Sponsoring and Fundraising Sponsorship from international corporations and organizations has increased as ICD becomes more involved in global educational and humanitarian projects.

To assist the College to more efficiently manage these global initiatives ICD Sections Regions or Fellows seeking funds from or to establish a relationship with international entities will need to coordinate their plans with the College Office.
