Information for Sponsors
Our currently featured campaign is the ISF Africa Capital Project, an economic empowerment strategy centered around education ventures in the African Union from Cape Town to Cairo. We have selected 500 entrepreneurial business development projects over a start-up period of three years since 2015, to participate in a joint venture partnership strategy known as the ISF Africa Fortune 500.
Contributions to the Independent Schooling Fund from private and independent business are tax-deductible in the category Advertising and Promotions for corporate sponsors, business and community stakeholders who participate in our cross-promotions and social media marketing campaigns.
Individuals who contribute to our fundraising campaigns and who do not own a stake in a private business, may transfer their sponsorship credit to an organization or cause of their choice. Individual sponsors who have contributed to our campaigns and who do not wish to receive the associated cross-promotion or advertising benefit for themselves, may nominate an organization or business of their choice to be the beneficiary of their sponsorship and of the advertising dollar deduction associated with their contribution.
All sponsor nominations by individuals are subject to clearance by the ISF Legal team and to approval by the designated recipient of the sponsorship benefits.
Designated nominees (organizations or businesses) may take advantage of the advertising or cross-promotion opportunity purchased by individual sponsors. Nominees are eligible to deduct the amount spent by individual sponsors on their behalf on associated cross-promotions or campaign media where permissible by law.
Crowd funding platform sponsorships originating from Canada are subject to HST and are therefore eligible for the HST input tax credit in addition to being deductible in the "Advertising and Promotions" category for participating business entities. HST is included on our current promotions in all cases and is remitted by ISF on behalf of the sponsor.
Choose one of our crowd funding platforms to contribute, or send your donation via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org with notes indicating the project, member school or student you wish to sponsor.
You may also contribute by cash to a duly authorized ISF representative, by cheque or bank draft to our Toronto office, by Interac e-deposit to email@example.com or ask us to invoice your company or organization for the sponsorship amount decided upon, to be settled at a later date.
For monthly contributions via the secure Patreon platform, you may stipulate an amount to be billed directly to your credit card on the first of each month. You may stop or change the amount of your sponsorship at any time.
If you prefer to send an amount designated to a specific purpose, or simply want to donate without going through the crowd funding platform, click the Donate button below and fill in the Donor Information Form to make your wishes known as to how you wish to designate your financial contribution (ISF Africa Capital Project/Own It Africa! or ISF Legal Defense, or a specific ISF member school or eligible student's individual scholarship or student loan fund).
Anyone can donate to the Independent Schooling Fund.
Any student can apply to our Fund for consideration, regardless of income or academic achievement.
There is no application fee for students at this time. Student applicants require ISF Legal Defense Association coverage. Sponsors may provide ISFLDA Family Memberships for students who cannot afford the fees.
