A Message from Leadership



Lynette L. Marshall

President and CEO

The University of Iowa Foundation

Today's University of Iowa students are learning more, experiencing more, and succeeding more—backed by the power of philanthropy. By the end of our 2016 fiscal year (June 30, 2016), more than 200,000 alumni and friends had contributed more than $1.78 billion to For Iowa. Forever More: The Campaign for the University of Iowa, helping us exceed our ambitious goal and ensuring that future generations can do more, see more, and be more at Iowa. Our 2016 Annual Report on Giving to the University of Iowa gives you an at-a-glance view of the impact our donors have made thus far. As we approach 2017, and the successful conclusion of our comprehensive campaign, know that we are forever grateful for your support!

The University of Iowa Foundation Board of Directors

Donors to this campaign are providing the visionary resources that will support our people and advance learning and discovery for years to come. This fall, we are dedicating and opening new campus facilities, and we'll also mark the 60th anniversary of the University of Iowa Foundation. It's an appropriate time to celebrate our donors, whose gifts set Iowa apart. Thank you for helping us give more to our students and faculty—and to Iowa.

It's an exciting time for the University of Iowa. In the midst of our growth and change, our alumni and friends have remained steadfast in their support. In my first year as president of this remarkable university, I've had the opportunity to meet Hawkeyes throughout the country who care so passionately about Iowa and want to give back. The collective giving of so many is helping us continue to provide more world-class opportunities for our students and faculty. Thank you for supporting the University of Iowa.
