Benefits of Membership

Membership in the Foundation supports our continuing mission to provide education to the community. ICLF is a non-profit, tax exempt organization under IRS 501(c)3.

Membership in the Iowa City Learning Foundation is open to all participants who have completed EFL I and pay a nominal annual membership fee. Members receive periodic email updates concerning activities of the Foundation, and may attend meetings of the Board of Directors and our Annual Meeting. Annual meetings of the Foundation consist of reports from the Officers and Board, voting on Directors and any issues before the membership, and a special educational interlude delivered by the coaches.

The Iowa City Learning Foundation is committed to the excellence of our educational program. While we make every effort to ensure that our courses are affordable, we believe that the value of the education we offer is so important that financial need should not prevent a person from attending.

The Iowa City Learning Foundation Scholarship Program offers scholarships to individuals who request financial assistance and meet our need guidelines. Scholarships are awarded in the form of a grant from our general Scholarship Fund and typically cover a portion of the tuition for a course. In some cases, the Foundation may award a Scholarship based on a contract which requires the recipient to perform ongoing service or other activity directly relating to or extending the educational or scholarship programs of the Foundation.

Scholarship-specific donations may be made to our Scholarship Fund, which supports grants to allow greater access to ICLF courses. You may also contribute to the ICLF general fund, which is used to cover operating costs of the Foundation not covered by basic membership.

Membership Fees for 2013 are $15. If making an additional contribution, please indicate the purpose on the memo line of your check. Options are: Scholarship Fund; Administrative Costs; or Either. You will receive an acknowledgment of your contribution at year-end. You may mail your renewal to:
