Iowa State University Alumni Association


Becoming an ISU Alumni Association sponsor can help you show your customers that you share the feelings of loyalty, pride, and passion that have endeared more than 49,000 Association members and hundreds of thousands of alumni, students, and friends to Iowa State University through their Alumni Association and its activities.

According to a recent
survey by IEG, Inc.:

  • Sponsorship can help boost brand loyalty by the connection of a product or service to an organization customers care about.
  • Consumers buy brands that they recognize, and
    sponsorship is a great way to obtain broad exposure.
  • 86 percent of consumers have a more positive image of an organization or business which supports its community, and nearly half are willing to switch brands as a result.

Founded in 1878, the mission of the ISU Alumni Association (an indepedent 501(c)3, self-governing organization) is to facilitate the lifetime connection of alumni, students, and friends with Iowa State University and each other. The Association truly serves as an Iowa Stater's window to the university through memorable events and powerful communications.
