The Irish Setter Club of  America Foundation exists through the generosity of  friends of the Irish Setter.  We provide opportunities for people to honor and support our breed. During the year we engage in activities and fund raising efforts to encourage people to join us in maintaining and developing programs which will further our mission.

These are some of the activities which help us reach our goals.  

DONATIONS  - We welcome donations and bequests of any amount designated for health, rescue and undesignated funds for such things as scholarships, publications and educational conferences. All donations are income tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law under our 501(c )(3) designation.

Donations are acknowledged in the ISCA Memo and in person to the donor and the honoree.
