Thank you for your interest in supporting INCS and its member schools in their mission to advocate for and provide high quality schools for underserved communities. INCS advocates for the improvement of public education by leveraging the charter school model as a catalyst to transform lives and communities.
INCS is ideally positioned to improve the operational environment in which high quality charter public schools can thrive. INCS does not operate the schools or purchase goods and services on behalf of schools. However, INCS can connect outstanding companies with INCS member schools. By serving as a connector rather than a provider of goods or services, INCS enables member schools to reduce operational costs through efficiencies of scale without sacrificing the operational autonomy that is key to their success.
The Charter MarketPlace
In December 2017, INCS launched the Illinois Charter MarketPlace, a tool for schools to search, find and review companies. It’s free for schools to use. Businesses can sign up for different levels of membership. Each business member agrees to learn about the work of Illinois charter public schools. In addition to benefits like being listed on our website, being included in regular communications, and receiving a list of Illinois charter public schools, each business can choose to take advantage of different sponsorship opportunities.
Please visit the Marketplace to learn more about INCS, how the Marketplace can help you connect with our member schools, and complete the short application. If you have questions and/or need assistance getting set up, please contact us directly.
