The Islamic Culture Foundation finances its activities by means of the periodic monetary contributions of its members, its cultural publications and other services. Individual projects normally receive subsidies from other public and private institutions. However, the spirit of the Foundation is one of total independence, thus always avoiding any direct link to a particular political or religious ideology that might compromise its strictly non-partisan approach.
The Islamic Culture Foundation has a Board of Directors, a permanent group of workers and researchers, and a numerous contingent of regular collaborators and volunteers.
The Islamic Culture Foundation engages and actively seeks collaboration and/or partnerships with numerous organisations and academic institutions in diverse countries.
It has participated in many cultural activities with different associations. Among them, The Jordanian Royal Society of Fine Arts, with which the foundation participated in 1988 in a seminar on Islamic Art, and the Moroccan Association Le Gran Atlas, along with which an encounter at the Kutubiyya mosque took place in Marrakech in 1991. Also, leading Spanish Foundation La Caixa, has regularly sponsored, and continues to support, several of the Foundation’s hugely popular touring exhibitions, as also does the Cervantes Institute, with whose collaboration a virtual exhibition about Andalusian gardens is available on-line at their website, www.cvc.cervantes.es
In addition to this, the Islamic Culture Foundation belongs to a Spanish network of non-profit organisations, part of the Anna Lindh Euro-Mediterranean Foundation for the Dialogue between Cultures. It has also collaborated with the Bernardo Aladrén Foundation, the Travelling Euro Arabic University, the Institut du Monde Arabe and the Féderation Mondiale des Cités Unies.
Also, the Foundation has signed partnership agreements with the Complutense University of Madrid, the University Carlos III of Madrid, the Madrid local government (Comunidad de Madrid), the Official Association of Psychologists of Spain, the Institute of Transcultural Psychology, the Spanish Pro Human Rights League, the La Caixa Foundation, UNESCO and the Council of Europe.
Also, throughout these years, the Islamic Culture Foundation has received the generous help of a great number of prestigious artists and professionals from all walks of life, like:
Rafael Manzano and Antonio Almagro, architects; Concepción Vázquez de Benito, Felipe Maillo and Camilo Álvarez de Morales, arabists. Antonio Vallejo, Manuel Retuerce and Antonio de Juan, archeologists. Javier Guillen, expert in garden history; Susana Calvo, art historian; Miguel Esteban Hernández and Alfonso Jiménez, botanists; Federico Mayor Zaragoza, ex-president of UNESCO; Lluís María de Puig, Euro MP.
Mikel Urmeneta (Kukuxumusu), Mariscal, Miguel Ripoll, Isabel de Burgos and María José Badolato, designers; Navia, Sergi Ramis, José María Díez, Oronoz and Isidoro Merino, photographers; José María Bermejo, Rafael Fraguas, Teresa Aranguren and Inés Eléxpuru, journalists: Darío Sirerol, chemist; Antonio Fraguas, comedian; Miguel and Santiago Sobrino, draughtsmen; José Vera (Alonso Quijano), scenographer; Joaquín Araújo, and many others.
One of the most effective forms to collaborate with the Islamic Culture Foundation is through unpaid voluntary community service. Many of the aforementioned cultural projects count on the generous work carried out by people who, throughout all the Spanish territory, make their development possible.
