We all want IP Inclusive to continue. Please help us ensure that it can.

There’s no paywall at IP Inclusive, not even a subscription for our Charter signatories. We don’t believe that would be inclusive. Instead our events and resources are free at the point of delivery, to everyone who works in our sector. IP Inclusive is and always has been a collaborative venture – by the professions, for the professions.

But it needs funding to continue at current activity levels. There’s so much more it could do, which IP Inclusive is uniquely positioned for because of its focus on, and reach throughout, the UK’s IP sector.

That’s why we ask all our supporters to give what they can, when they can, to keep the initiative going. If you value what it provides for your organisation and colleagues, and for the IP professions as a whole, please make a donation this year. 


Corporate donations

If your organisation would like to contribute, please contact us via [email protected] for payment details. Our governing body IP Inclusive Management (IPIM) will issue an invoice/receipt so that everyone’s accounts are in order: just let us know who to address it to, where to send it and whether there’s any special wording you need us to use.

We suggest the amount depend on the nature and size of your organisation and what it gets out of IP Inclusive. Anything between about £250 a year for the very smallest to about £3,000 a year from the larger private practice firms would be a massive help to us (or more if you’d like to help sponsor a specific project). Or you might prefer to set up a regular – say, annual – donation to simplify the admin; that’s fine too.

2023-24 donors will feature on our Supporters and Partners page.


Individual donations

We welcome donations from individual IP professionals too.

Perhaps you personally have benefited from the changes IP Inclusive’s been making, from the friends and colleagues you’ve met at our events, from the answers you’ve found here on all sorts of issues, both professional and personal? Or perhaps you’re feeling generally philanthropic? Either way, if you can give even a small amount to help us continue, we’d really appreciate that. Please contact our Lead Executive Officer Andrea Brewster for more information.

You may also be interested in our 2023 Annual Report, our 2022 Annual Report and our 2021-22 impact report, which showcase what we’ve achieved in the last couple of years. We hope you’ll agree that the donations we’ve received so far have gone to a very good cause.
