ICE Alumni Programs

As an ICE member, you’re part of an elite group of people who answered a call to help make the world a safer and better place to live. It’s not done without sacrifices—long, unpredictable hours, frequent uprooting, an intimacy with a darker, colder world than most are aware of. We honor your commitment and your perseverance by constantly seeking new avenues through which we can boost the agency’s prestige and its employees’ morale. And our efforts don’t end with your active duty. The foundation offers transition assistance for retired ICE employees and their families through initiatives like the Career Center and our newsletter.


Whether you’re a retired ICE employee seeking a second career or a spouse searching for a new job in a new city, our network’s comprised of some of the country’s most formidable companies.

Effective December 31, 2018, the Board of the ICE Foundation recently voted to officially close down the foundation and cease all operations.  However, an entirely new and separate organization, the Homeland Security Philanthropy Council, has been created and will take up many of the positive legacy programs of the former ICE Foundation.  The Homeland Security Philanthropy Council will be similar to the ICE Foundation but will assume a broader remit to assist law enforcement agencies within the Department of Homeland Security. ICE Foundation Executive Director James Barchiesi and several ICE Foundation Board members will help with the transition and continue their philanthropic efforts by supporting the Homeland Security Philanthropy Council.  However, it is important to clarify that the ICE Foundation will sunset at the end of 2018 and that the Homeland Security Philanthropy Council will be a new entity without any official connection to the former ICE Foundation. The ICE Foundation Board members would like to sincerely thank the many generous supporters of the ICE Foundation who have assisted our efforts over the years to support the ICE mission and the men and women of ICE and their families.
