Private Donations

The International Polar Foundation welcomes donations from individuals, to help it  implement its mission of supporting science in the polar regions, meeting the climate challenge and achieving a low carbon society.

What we stand for

Polar Sciences

Polar Sciences

The Arctic and the Antarctic, and the scientific research done in these regions can be used to communicate about climate change and the challenges our societies must meet to mitigate its effects.

Education and Outreach

Education and Outreach

Education and communication help world citizens to take informed decisions and move towards more sustainable, low carbon societies. Younger generations will have to be prepared to meet the climate challenge.

Innovation and Sustainability

Innovation and Sustainability

Technologies needed to meet the climate challenge are already available today. Building a "Zero Emission" station in one of the most hostile environments on Earth, using existing technologies, is a testament to that vision.
