ISF (International School of Flanders) Educational Trust vzw (known as ISF Trust) was legally established in 1998, and took on its present name and new statutory purpose in May 2012. The Trust’s objectives are:
- To provide teaching and care for children of all nationalities, with English being the main teaching language, and to support institutions which follow a recognised International Education curriculum; and
- To support the continuing education and development of students and teachers affiliated to internationally accredited English language educational institutes in Belgium and elsewhere in the world; and
- To engage in all operations which directly or indirectly promote the Trust’s purpose, including participating in or assisting other non-profit organisations with a similar purpose.
ISF Trust has a strict policy of only investing in projects which can realistically become self-financing and in which the Trustees themselves have real insight and experience. The Trustees always take an active role on the board of every investment to ensure the growth and recovery of the Trust’s funds for future redeployment and expansion of the Trust’s investments.
From the fruits of the Trust’s sound investments, further scholarships, bursaries and grants can then be made available to support the education of needy children.
ISF Trust is in that sense a true Social Enterprise!
