Iowa State University Alumni Association

ISU Alumni Center Giving Opportunities

The ISU Alumni Association (ISUAA) is a 501(c)(3) organization. Its mission is to facilitate the lifetime connection of alumni, students, and friends with Iowa State University and each other. This is accomplished through events, communications, and other programs and services. The ISUAA is primarily funded by membership dues. It does, however, offer a number of opportunities (listed below) for donors to make special, tax-deductible gifts to support the Association's work. Gifts to the ISUAA, as well as gifts to other ISU programs and units, are made through the Iowa State University Foundation, which is a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to securing and stewarding private gifts and grants that benefit the entire university.
