Thanks to the generosity of IRC members and friends like you, the International Relations Council is proud to be able to offer most events free of charge. We understand that even the most carefully made plans are subject to change. If you are unable to attend a virtual or in-person event for which you registered, we ask that you kindly alert us as soon as possible so your place may be made available to someone else.

If you purchased admission to a ticketed IRC event, we will gladly refund the ticket price up to the start time of the event for most virtual events and up to three days in advance for most in-person events. Occasionally, especially for events where meals or refreshments are being planned and served, we may require further advance notice for a refund to be possible; please refer to particular event registration pages for these exceptions.

In the unlikely event that an IRC program needs to be rescheduled or canceled, we will make every effort to accommodate registrants and will gladly refund ticket costs or register-by-donation contributions if you are unable to attend the rescheduled event.

Donations are otherwise nonrefundable, but if you have made an error in making your donation to the International Relations Council, please contact us. Refunds are returned using the original method of payment. If you made your donation by credit card, your refund will be credited to that same credit card. We are able to honor your request for a refund made within 15 days of your donation. To request a refund, please forward your confirmation of donation with your request to

Donors have the option to give recurring donations. To change or stop your monthly recurring giving to the International Relations Council, please email at least 15 days prior to the stop date.

Where an error has been made by our organization or a banking facility which results in an overpayment being made, our organization may, in consultation with the donor, refund by either a credit of the overpayment to the donor, or alternatively by check for the full amount of the overpayment. Checks will be sent within 30 days to the donor’s on file address. Donors are responsible to report any change of address to
