Chapter 24 – Memorial or Honorary Gifts
Effective May 2018, this policy has been revised. For individual changes, see the redlined version.
The University of Iowa Center for Advancement is an operational name used by the State University of Iowa Foundation. The State University of Iowa Foundation was organized in 1956 to help the University meet needs beyond those provided for by state support. The University of Iowa Center for Advancement is the University's preferred channel for private charitable contributions that benefit the University. Memorial or honorary gifts may be made to support any area of the University in honor or memory of deceased alumni, family, friends, faculty, or staff members of the University.
Contact the University of Iowa Center for Advancement for specific language which will ensure that gifts of a "deferred" nature are appropriately directed.
Memorial or honorary contributions can be made directly to the University if the donor prefers. In such cases, the initial contact is Treasury Operations. For large gifts, separate accounts are set up, with investment income expended in accordance with the wishes of the donors. For smaller gifts, the principal is expended as the donors direct.
