Non-Profit School

Proud to be non-profit

The International School of Zug and Luzern is organised as a non-profit foundation under Swiss law and operates with approval from the Educational Authorities of the Cantons of Zug and Luzern. ISZL is registered as a non-profit organisation (Stiftung) in Switzerland and affiliated with a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organisation in the United States.

ISZL receives no direct funding from any government or external agency. Revenue raised through tuition and other fees enable the School to offer the highest standard of core academic and pastoral programmes. However, to enhance these programmes, ISZL seeks the support of its community through the annual fund.

Supporting our students and school

The Fund for Excellence (FFE), the school’s annual giving programme, provides important additional resources, above the operational budget, that enables ISZL to enhance student learning and reach new levels of educational excellence. Because of the generous donations and sponsorships by parents, staff, local businesses and corporations, the FFE receives the means to fund these projects.
