Annual Fund: Answer the Call 

The Upper Iowa University Annual Fund is made up of thousands of generous alumni, friends, parents, faculty and staff of the institution. Today’s students benefit from the support of alumni and friends who help provide them with opportunities through gifts to the Annual Fund. Such gifts are unrestricted and fund university wide enhancements by adding flexibility to the overall operating budget. Your annual donation supports opportunities that are critical to the learning experience for students. Unrestricted giving is also selfless giving, and we thank all of our annual donors that are helping UIU bridge the gap between tuition and the overall cost of a student experience.

Can I designate which school or area receives my support?

Yes! We welcome anyone that is interested in supporting a specific school through the Dean’s Funds to designate their gift. A single gift can easily be split among two or more areas, all you have to do is indicate how you would like your gifts to be allocated.

  • Betty's Team Fund (Andres School of Education Dean's Fund)
  • School of Liberal Arts Dean's Fund
  • School of Science & Mathematics Churbuck Dean's Fund

How can I increase the impact of my contribution through a matching gift? 

Many companies and foundations will match the value of charitable contributions made by employees. Find out if a particular company or foundation has a matching gift program.

Why should I consider making an ongoing pledge to the UIU Annual Fund?

An ongoing pledge to Upper Iowa University can help you keep track of your total annual giving, cut down on annual solicitations, and ensure that you continue to support the Annual Fund each and every fiscal year without constant reminders. Don’t worry! You can still receive a call from a student annually just to chat even if you have an ongoing pledge.
