Do you, your office and/or your organisation gain value from the knowledge sharing and social networking platforms of The Communication Initiative (The CI)?

If so, can we please encourage you to make a small financial contribution that recognises that value and helps to sustain and grow this platform with free access for all?

Some suggested contribution levels follow but please note that they are just suggestions and all contributions are very much welcome.

When you are logged in you can enter an amount in the field below, then click Add to Cart (very Amazon!) and submit your payment by credit card.

Alternatively just email our Administrator, Victoria Martin who can provide an invoice for you at the level you are prepared to contribute. Victoria can also issue a small agreement if that is required.

Guidance on possible Associates contribution levels (suggested in USD equivalent, but level of support is of course at your discretion) include:

  • Large development organisations - $5,000
  • Individual offices/sections in development organisations - $2,000
  • Medium sized and smaller development organisations - $2,000
  • University departments in OECD countries - $1,000
  • University departments in other countries - $500.00
  • Small, local NGOs - $100
  • Individuals - $100

Perhaps you have budget lines to cover these costs for example, from the experience of other Associates, knowledge sharing, communication, partnerships, subscriptions, and many others.

The Associates providing this support are featured on the home page with a full listing with links to each Associate's website at this link.

If you do not see the payment slot below my signature into which you can enter the amount you wish to contribute as an Associate and then complete the online payment, please log in and the field will appear. Just enter the amount and click on "Add to Cart. Alternatively, just email Victoria.

Thank you. We very much appreciate your consideration of this support. It is an honour to support your very important work. Please let me know if you have any questions or wish to discuss any matter related to the Associates process.
