The IAEM Scholarship Program depends on the help of members and the emergency management community to provide funding to help fund scholarships for deserving students. Cash donations are not the only way you can help us increase the scholarship fund. Please consider helping through the following methods.
Every time you shop at any of the 2,300+ online stores in the iGive network, a portion of the money you spend benefits IAEM Scholarship Program. It's a free service, and you'll never pay more when you reach a store through iGive. In fact, smart shoppers will enjoy iGive's repository of coupons, free shipping deals, and sales. To get started, just create your free iGive account.

Each year IAEM solicits items to be auctioned at the Annual Conference. Items may be sent to IAEM Headquarters for this event throughout the year. In addition to the Live and Silent Auctions, regions, councils, caucuses, and chapters prepared baskets based on themes of their choice. Attendees participate in a raffle for these baskets.
