Iowa State University Foundation
The Iowa State University Foundation is a private non-profit organization dedicated to securing and stewarding private gifts and grants that benefit Iowa State University. Each year, thousands of generous benefactors make gifts to show their support for Iowa State.
The ISU Foundation works with Iowa State administrators, deans and unit leaders to determine the university's fundraising priorities. These projects may include professorships, faculty support, student scholarships, facility improvements, new equipment, athletic support, program enhancements and new buildings, just to name a few. The ISU Foundation staff and volunteer leadership works in partnership with university officials to generate private support for ISU.
