The Iowa Lakes Foundation supports projects that enrich our students' entire learning experience and offers vivid cultural opportunities for the greater community.

Activities supported by the Iowa Lakes Community College Foundation include:

  • Seat in the Spotlight - Performing Arts Center - Chair Campaign
  • We Believe Annual Giving Program
  • Exclusive Beverage Contract (which supports student scholarships)


Established initially as the Iowa Lakes Housing Foundation in 1982, the Board of Trustees of Iowa Lakes Community College authorized establishing a new foundation in 1995. 

As we know it today, the Iowa Lakes Community College Foundation was incorporated on September 13, 1996, as a 501(c)3 non-profit, charitable organization.

The Foundation serves the entire college district with members from each of the five counties, focusing on developing scholarships and other resources not available through public funding for all students' benefit, regardless of the campus they attend.


Giving Opportunities

Donors can designate how gifts are allocated to support Iowa Lakes in a manner of their choosing. The Iowa Lakes Foundation cumulatively monitors donations to recognize donors at the highest level for contribution recognition. Donors should note that once gifts reach $2,500 in annual contributions, the individual or business will be recognized as a President’s Circle member.

The Iowa Lakes Community College Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Every gift is greatly appreciated and tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
