U.S. Federal employees can give to the ICBL from 1 September - 15 December 2009 through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), the world's largest workplace charity campaign.

The ICBL has been admitted to the 2009 CFC as a member of Peace and Reconciliation Charities. Charities that apply to receive funds through the CFC are required to submit to extensive review of their financial and governance practices prior to acceptance.

To support the ICBL, enter code 55130. Additional information on the Combined Federal Campaign: www.opm.gov/cfc

If you wish to donate to the ICBL but are not a U.S. Federal employee, visit our Donate Now page.

You can donate online through a secured PayPal page or by regular mail. Residents of United States and France will be provided with a tax receipt.

Help us ensure that as many states as possible ban landmines and cluster munitions, address the needs of victims and fully respect their rights, clear contaminated land and destroy their stockpiled weapons, making sure they will never claim the lives or limbs of innocent civilians. With your support, the ICBL:

  • Encourages governments to finance and implement victim assistance and demining
  • Encourages and supports survivors to participate in national campaigning and international diplomatic processes
  • Trains and provides technical and financial support to campaigners in mine- and cluster munitions-affected countries, to ensure the voice of local civil society is heard directly by decision-makers
  • Feeds information to governments, practitioners in the field, decision-makers and the media to keep the spotlight on the mines and cluster munitions problem
  • Monitors the international response to the global landmine and explosive remnants of war problem through Landmine Monitor. This provides solid evidence to back our campaigning activities.

With your support, the ICBL works to create the political conditions to ensure land is cleared, stockpiles of weapons are destroyed and victims receive assistance and see their rights respected. This is the only way to prevent and address the suffering caused by these weapons. Contributions also have a ripple effect: they show that there is public interest in the landmine issue and this in turn helps us gain commitments from large institutional donors.
