University of Iowa President Sally Mason has developed a new program that will double the impact of scholarship funds created or increased over the next five years. The Golden Pledge program will match the payout from new, privately funded endowed undergraduate scholarships of $100,000 or more. Read more about the Golden Pledge program.
When scholarships are endowed by generous and loyal supporters, those reimbursements to the UI are covered, allowing the Athletics Department to direct annual gifts and other revenues toward other essential needs. Endowed scholarship gifts through the Hawkeye Visions Endowment Program have enabled Iowa's intercollegiate athletics programs to move forward even in the face of rapidly increasing expenses.
The UI is grateful for the visionary support of alumni and friends who have demonstrated their pride in the athletic and academic success of all Hawkeye student-athletes by establishing named, endowed scholarships, while also perpetually linking their name with the proud Iowa Hawkeye tradition.
Endowed funds provide stable, long-term financial support. Unlike athletics operations revenue (such as ticket or concession sales) or annual I-Club contributions, gifts to endowed funds are invested to protect the "purchasing power" so that over the long term the funds will fulfill the donors’ specified purposes. The amount made available to UI Athletics continues to accrue, providing crucial scholarship support for generations of Hawkeye student-athletes.
The goal of the Hawkeye Visions Endowment Program is to work with Iowa Hawkeye supporters to secure sufficient resources to endow each student-athlete scholarship in every sport.
