Donor Benefits

The greatest reward for making a donation is the warm feeling one receives by helping advance the sciences and technologies from which one has benefited in their career. The financial assistance provided by The ISPRS Foundation (TIF) makes an important contribution by enabling grant recipients to better develop their expertise in the photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences.

The vast majority of grants are provided to individuals and organizations in developing and reform countries. These include grants that support education and applications for emerging markets in many regions of the world.

The awarding of grants is a result of a rigorous process in which multi-national committees and juries evaluate documentation submitted by numerous candidates in order to qualify the most deserving applicants for selection. This process is conducted wholly by volunteer specialists to ensure that your donations are being wisely invested in the future of the profession.

Donor names are automatically posted on the TIF website, unless they request anonymity. The Board of Trustees have decided that repeat donors will receive special recognition.

TIF will endeavor to issue press releases to the ISPRS and spatial information communities giving recognition to donors of large and special donations.

And for many donors, a tangible reward is that their charitable donation often qualifies for tax deduction or tax relief in their country. This tax relief is a result of The ISPRS Foundation having established and continuing to maintain its entity registration status as a not-for-profit, public, educational and scientific foundation according to US Code 501 (c)(3). Donors are encouraged to consult with their accountant or tax advisor to receive this relief. Donors are provided with a TIF receipt every time they make a donation.



The ISPRS Foundation, Inc. (TIF) is an independently registered entity that has been established to provide financial assistance and in-kind support solely for benevolent purposes that are pursued by The International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS).
