Why We Do This

ICCSD Foundation: Ensuring the Future

The Iowa City Community School District schools are excellent. However, there is always a need to expand educational opportunity and meet the needs of our children beyond the core program that is provided by the public schools.

Unfortunately, school districts alone cannot fund the additional financial support that schools and students require. The Foundation provides a means for our community to become involved in public education and to make a difference in our schools and the lives of our students. Funds raised in our communities will support innovative programs and provide and enrich educational opportunities. Your contribution will ensure the success of our most precious resource (our children) today and in the future.

How We Do This

Funds are raised from generous individuals, business sponsors, and from community members by direct appeals and through community-wide educational and social events. This is done using a variety of mechanisms, including:

  • General donations – cash, online giving, credit card, or pledged donations
  • Planned giving – wills, trusts, estate plans
  • Gifts of stock
  • Matched giving – donations matched by employers
  • Fund-raisers – Dine Out for Education, Round Up, Education is Everybody’s Business Breakfast
