In Kind Support and Volunteering

The work we do at BISI would not be possible without the generosity of volunteers who give up their time in a variety of ways.

Legacy Giving

A legacy gift is a very tangible way to ensure that the value of culture and heritage can endure for generations to come.

Corporate Partnerships

Through partnerships BISI can offer access to specialist events, high level networking opportunities, information sharing and more.

What your donations can help us to achieve:


Fund a cycle of our Visiting Scholar Programme to support our Iraqi colleagues working in desperately difficult situations, and ensure the protection of their work.


Makes a significant contribution towards the costs of digitising the archive of the archaeological site of Nimrud, attacked by Da’esh in 2015.


Enables us to fund cataloguing and online publication of the archive collection.
