Alumni and friends can continue to support the aspirations of the new ISU Alumni Center in the following two categories: naming opportunities and gift-level giving.
Gifts to this project are tax-deductible, count toward one's total lifetime giving to the university and in the university's current comprehensive campaign, and qualify or support one's membership in the Order of the Knoll.

ISU Alumni Association Arts & Artifacts Collections Policy
The Iowa State University Alumni Association seeks to collect books, artifacts, and memorabilia that promote the traditions of Iowa State, tell the story of Iowa State and the accomplishments of its graduates, and preserve the history of Iowa State. Artifacts and memorabilia in the ISU Alumni Association collection are meant to be viewed (and books browsed) by visitors, and this collection is not meant to supplant the University Archives within the ISU Library.
Items desired for the ISU Alumni Association collection should be in fair and original condition. The ISUAA will limit the collection to items that can be reasonably well preserved, cared for, stored, and displayed.
The ISUAA wishes its collection to fully represent the history of Iowa State across all decades and all academic and extracurricular experiences. Artifacts related to the following areas are of particular interest to the ISUAA include, but are not limited to:

The Iowa State University Alumni Association is an independent 501(c)3, self-governing organization charged with the mission of engaging the talents and resources of alumni, students, and friends in the life, work, and aspiration of Iowa State University. Our vision is to become the lifetime partner in engaging all alumni, students, and friends with Iowa State University.
