Rights and Responsibilities of ISF Association Members

Membership enables participating private or independent schools, education projects, activity programs, home schooling families and other independent educators to gain access to the fundraising resources of the Independent Schooling Fund.
Membership entitles private and independent schools, education projects and activity programs to receive referrals of eligible prospective students from the Independent Schooling Fund Association.
All members have access to our featured promotions, special events and collective fundraising campaigns.
Currently featured in-house campaigns are ISF Legal Defense and ISF Africa Capital Project. Our 2015 seasonal special promotion is our Sister Schools program. Ontario members have the opportunity to be matched with schools in Africa in the ISF Africa Capital Project. This offer is presently available to private and independent schools in Ontario only, but it will expand across North America in the future. This project is strongly supported by educators, students, community stakeholders, and celebrities across Africa.
Independent Schooling Fund Legal Defense is a project in which our member schools are supported by a network of specialist lawyers across North America who serve the needs of our members in protecting the right to freedom of choice in education.
We engage in continuous fundraising for our Legal Defense Fund to assist any member in need and also to address issues surrounding academic freedom in matters of principle.
Our phone fundraising service provider optimizes decades of professional experience in the non-profit fundraising sector and is able to manage any size fundraising campaign professionally so that you can get on with your most important job: educating the thought leaders of the future.
