PATRON OF ICCF PROGRAMME
The 2003 ICCF Congress in Ostrava approved the establishment of a
new Development Fund and designated that the first development project
would be the ICCF Webserver. Congress also unanimously approved the
introduction of individual, group and/or national federation patronage
of ICCF, with specific benefits, as one source of funding and it directed
the Webserver Steering Group to make detailed arrangements to initiate
and progress such funding.
At this time the ICCF Webserver Steering Group and Executive Board
would like to announce the general outline of the programme, with
specific details of one element of the programme.
The purpose of the Patron of ICCF programme is threefold:
1. Provide a significant initial contribution to the ICCF Development
2. Provide an ongoing source of revenue for the ICCF Development Fund.
3. Provide a framework for future sponsorship arrangements between
ICCF and individuals and/or organisations.
The Patron of ICCF programme will consist of three classifications,
consisting of Individual, National Federation, and Corporate Patron
of ICCF. Two specific benefits will be common to all patrons. Each
classification of patron will have free use of a "Patron of ICCF"
logo on their personal/organisation material and websites and will
receive prominent recognition on the ICCF website and in other official
The first designation of patronage will be the Individual Patron of
ICCF. The minimum contribution for this designation will be CHF 500.
This patronage will be considered to be for the lifetime of the patron.
The name of each patron will be displayed on the square of his/her
choice, on a 64 square chessboard, which will be prominently featured
on the ICCF Webserver. If patrons prefer, they may, of course, remain
Squares on the chessboard will be allocated based on the order of
requests received by the contact person. When reserving your square
please provide at least three alternative squares you would be willing
to accept. Once a request has been acknowledged, arrangements will
be made for payment of the contribution. Upon receipt of payment,
the square will be guaranteed for that specific patron.
The contact person for the Patron of ICCF programme will be ICCF Finance
Director, Grayling Hill. You may contact him with any enquiries at
