About Us


We support independent thinking through liberal arts education. Our mission is to raise funds for I-Fund member colleges — principally from businesses and foundations — for scholarships, programs and technology, and to promote a greater awareness of the value of Maryland’s independent liberal arts colleges and universities


  • Expand educational opportunities to diversify leadership in the civic, corporate and political communities
  • Strengthen the democratic process by preparing people to reason and discern truth
  • Enrich the learning environment by providing support for new programs, technologies and other resources

The Independent College Fund of Maryland Defined:


      Liberal Arts education to preserve the integrity of responsible individualism


      Growing minds through education: the seeds of change


      Investing in a higher purpose to raise the bar that raises the hopes of the child raised
      by the community


      World class education, health care, science, arts, sports, scenery, business and students!
