The mission of the ISSA Foundation is to raise and provide funds for scholarships, research grants, and other programs that promote the welfare of the general public as it relates to the sanitation, cleaning, and maintenance industry.

This mission is accomplished through generous donations from individuals and companies, most of whom are ISSA members. Contributions support the annual scholarship program and are tax-deductible.

The ISSA Foundation’s Board of Directors is committed to ensuring the success and growth of the cleaning industry through the foundation’s support of today’s youth.

Your Foundation Board has a goal of increasing both the size and number of its scholarships, and funding industry research once we meet other funding objectives. With all the challenges thus far, we need to step up to the plate. Your past contributions are greatly appreciated, but we need to dig deeper and give more. If we work together, we can continue to make a difference in people’s lives.
