Ikebana Iwaya Fund (IIF) believes in promoting ikebana in North America. We support any ikebana related activities. It is well worth the wonderful artistic creations, personal interactions and serenity that it brings. IIF is ready to assist you in this endeavor with grants or channeling the donations where desired.   As an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit, IIF provides donors with a receipt for income tax returns.

Since 2015, Ikebana Iwaya Fund (IIF) has proudly distributed over $12,500 to the following:

Ikebana International Chapters:

  • Albuquerque
  • Chinook
  • Colorado Springs
  • Miami
  • Naples
  • New Orleans
  • Orlando
  • Pittsburgh
  • Rochester
  • Sarasota
  • Spokane
  • St Petersburg
  • Tacoma-Olympia
  • Wilmington NC
  • Winston-Salem

Ikebana study groups:

  • Delaware Valley Ohara
  • Ohara Houston
  • Sangetsu
  • Sogetsu Brandywine
  • Sogetsu Houston

We have also received various designated donations totaling $2100 that enabled us to increase our endowment fund an additional $4200. Every dollar donation allows an increase of the endowment fund two-fold. The larger the fund, the more ikebana activities can be funded.

In addition, IIF was honored to receive a grant of $12,000 from NARC 2014 hosted by II Asheville Chapter. This generated a 2:1 match of $24,000 from the estate of the IIF Founder, Sumako Iwaya Solenberger, all of which went into the IIF Endowment Fund to earn increased dividends.

Please encourage your members to make donations designated to your organization through the Ikebana Iwaya Fund. All Donation Forms and IIF Request Forms can be found at our website at ikebanaiwaya.org. With you, IIF will continue to expand its outreach for the benefit of the ikebana community in the U.S.
