Fundraising Registration

Please take a moment to register your fundraising event with ISF. Provide as much information as possible about your proposed fundraising idea so that we may determine how and if the proposal can be associated with ISF

ISF treasures the enthusiasm that is generated by our mission.  In order to ensure that this enthusiasm is sustained, it is necessary to limit the types of activities ISF will support. Below is a partial list of events that ISF will NOT support:

  • Record setting endurance events
  • Ideas requiring telemarketing, direct mail, door-to-door sales, or vending machines
  • Ideas requiring the acquisition, use, or solicitation of ISF's donors, vendors, partners, volunteers or employees
  • Ideas requiring Ian's participation (providing autographs, photographs, video, etc. or attending an event)
  • Ideas that market, advertise or promote products or services (Click here to learn about ISF Cause Marketing Programs)
  • Ideas associated with products or services deemed inappropriate (including, but not limited to, tobacco, adult content, firearms, etc.)

Click Here if your fundraising idea involves donating a portion (e.g. 10% or a fixed dollar amount per sale) to ISF from the sale of goods or services.

If you are a registered ISF Community Crew, please send your fundraising event request via email directly to the ISF Community Crew Team.


When possible, this form should be submitted at least 60 days prior to the desired start date of your fundraising event.

ISF is continuously creating and developing fundraising ideas that may be similar to your materials or ideas; please do not submit information that you consider confidential or proprietary. It is possible that the idea you wish to submit has been considered previously, is in development, is being tested or is being implemented. If you submit an idea, you do so with the understanding that ISF cannot accept information other than that which you intend to share freely, without any compensation to the submitter. By receiving information on your fundraising idea, ISF is not obligated to enter into a fundraising program with you.
