Private philanthropy is critical to the success of the College of Human Sciences and will help to determine the prestige and reputation of our college for decades to come.

Gifts are made through the ISU Foundation, a private, non-profit corporation dedicated to securing and managing financial gifts that benefit Iowa State University.
