Private Sector and Individuals

New IFCD email address:

Cultural and creative industries contribute up to 10% of the GDP in some developing countries and generate about 30 million jobs worldwide, employing more people aged 15-29 than any other sector - which is why investing in creativity is so important.

Building partnerships with the Private Sector

The International Fund for Cultural Diversity is now reaching out beyond its existing government donor base and entering into partnerships with private sector corporations and high net worth individuals. The IFCD will focus on creating high-value strategic relationships with a small number of carefully cultivated partners. 

Individuals can contribute to the IFCD by making a financial contribution via Paypal:


If you wish to make a contribution by bank transfer or check, please inform the UNESCO Secretariat by e-mail of your intention to contribute to the IFCD, making sure to indicate in the subject line "Contribution to the IFCD". The message should be addressed to:
