Our Promise to Our Partners
ICON Charities Inc. (ICONC) functions as a platform where the values and aspirations of caring and compassionate donors translate into tangible benefits for the poor and needy in our society. Our aim is to provide an open and honest environment where the willing donor gets connected with the deserving beneficiary. As volunteers, our purpose is only to inform, guide and assist the donor in fulfilling his or her philanthropic wishes, but never to improperly influence such decision.
Philanthropy is a voluntary action for the common good and betterment of our community, based on a tradition of giving and sharing. Our ultimate aim is to seek and secure investment in a better society, a higher quality of life for the have-nots, and showcase humanity at its very best, expressing love, hope and care for others who have greater needs. To ensure that ICONCâ€™s philanthropic programs merit the respect and trust of the general public, and that the current and prospective donors have full confidence in our programs that they support, ICONC declare that all donor-partners have these rights:
