Support Leadership Training
Businesses, law firms, and individuals may support leadership training for school board members by making tax deductible, charitable contributions to the Illinois Association of School Boards. These contributions, no matter their size, allow IASB to provide additional training opportunities and resources for local school board members.
IASB is organized exclusively for tax exempt purposes. Its status as a charitable corporation allows donors to receive a tax deduction for their contributions. Please contact IASB if you, your business or law firm wish to make a tax deductible, charitable contribution. Depending upon IASB needs at the time of your contribution, the donation will be used for such purposes as workshops, speakers, receptions, scholarships, dinners, research, publications and/or special projects. Your support will be recognized in printed materials, display signs, donor representation at events, public announcements and introductions from the podium, or printed acknowledgment in publications.
