Humanities Iowa (HI) supports cultural programs and events throughout the state of Iowa. This is made possible through the NEH and from support through donations.

Why give?

With only funding from the NEH, each Iowan is allocated about $0.40 per year. With your gift, more Iowans can enjoy the humanities and what is important to Iowans.

How to give?

Donate Online or send a check to our postal address.


Whether it is a one time or a recurring gift, every cent helps every Iowan.

Employer Matches

Many employers will match an employee's donation, making your donation twice as helpful. Please check with your human resources representative to see if your employer will match charitable gifts.

Gifts in Memory or Honor

Gifts can be made in memory of someone special or to celebrate a special occasion. Please provide the name of the person or persons that the gift will honor.
