Our History


            The Irish Setter Club of America Foundation was established in 2000 by the Irish Setter Club of America (ISCA) as a tax exempt public charity under IRS Code Section 501(c)(3). The Foundation was initially funded with a $50,000 contribution from ISCA Health Committee funds and $40,000 from the Virginia Hardin Trust. The Foundation Board of Directors consists of twelve Directors. All are ISCA members, four of whom are elected annually by the ISCA Board of Directors for three year terms. We also maintain an Advisory Committee, selected by the ISCA Foundation Board which serves at the discretion of the Board.

            Health related projects are administered through the ISCA Health Committee with the consent of the ISCA Foundation Board. Rescue and rehabilitation grants are administered through the Rescue Committee with the consent of the ISCA Foundation Board.
