Tuition waivers for teachers: Your teaching contract indicates the amount of your tuition waiver. Teachers without children can choose to apply the cash equivalent of the waiver to membership fees. Any teacher who opts not to use his/her waiver can “donate” it to IFFP and get a tax-deductible credit for the cash equivalent of the waivers forgone. 

Teachers, please answer these questions:

Grade level you are teaching this year  

Do you want to use your waiver?  Yes   No 
[If yes, subtract the waiver amount from your tuition bill.  If no, pay full tuition bill and we will send you a letter acknowledging the tax-deductible donation.]

3. Donation to Scholarship and Endowment Fund                                    

Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. These funds will be used to fund Sunday School for anyone with a financial hardship and toward building an IFFP endowment.

If your annual amount is more than the Membership Fee, you may pay the entire sum or pay half now and the balance by January 1, 2005.


Please make your check payable to IFFP and mail to:
