Integrated Education Fund
The Integrated Education Fund (IEF) is an independent fundraising and grant making charitable body providing a financial foundation for the development and growth of integrated education in Northern Ireland.
It draws its mandate from the growing demand from parents and pupils for inclusive high quality integrated education. Its aim is simple. It wants to enable as many children as possible to learn together in an environment that celebrates, not fears, religious and cultural diversity. It wants to make integration not separation the norm in the education system.
It supports the establishment of new integrated schools, the transformation of existing schools to integrated status and cross community school initiatives and projects that provides meaningful interaction between pupils, parents, staff and the wider community.
