Honoring a Deceased Colleague with a Memorial Donation
It is possible to support the work of FIDA by making donations in remembrance of a deceased colleague. Making a memorial donation to FIDA is a wonderful way to honor a colleague’s memory. In this way you can do something tangible to keep her or his memory alive and carry forward their ideals. We will display these gestures in a list on this page. Unfortunately, it is not possible under French law, which governs the ICA’s finances, to leave money to FIDA in your will. Instead, we encourage you to ask one of your successors or executors to make a memorial donation as described above.
