The Hawkeye Legacy Fund
The tradition of Hawkeye devotion includes financial support. Thousands of fans join the I-Club each year by making an annual gift to support UI Athletics through the Hawkeye Fund or Iowa Scholarship Fund.
UI tuition continues to rise annually, increasing the amount the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics pays to the University to cover scholarship costs. Your I-Club support for the scholarships that enable Iowa to recruit top student-athletes is vital. I-Club gifts also defray the costs of team travel, equipment and supplies, and medical support.
With the endowed Hawkeye Legacy Fund, you now have an opportunity to extend your I-Club support for generations to come. By including the Hawkeye Legacy Fund in your current charitable-giving or estate plans - while continuing your annual I-Club support - you will add to an endowment that will be used for the kinds of expenses covered by I-Club gifts: scholarships and other initiatives that enable all Hawkeye teams to compete at the highest level year after year.
HOW TO GIVE TO THE HAWKEYE LEGACY FUND
There are several ways of making a planned or outright gift to the University of Iowa Foundation to support the Hawkeye Legacy Fund, each of which offers tax benefits for you and your heirs. (Please consult your financial advisor or attorney before making any gift commitments in your estate plans.)
As part of an endowment, your planned or outright gift to the Hawkeye Legacy Fund will be carefully invested, with only the annual payout used to support UI Athletics. The investment objective for the University of Iowa Foundation endowment is to seek maximum total return consistent with the preservation of principal, diversification, and avoidance of excessive risk. These objectives are designed to provide a steady flow of income for donor designated purpose.
To maintain your current I-Club membership, please continue your annual support for the Hawkeye Fund or Iowa Scholarship Fund. Your ongoing I-Club support amplifies your cheers in the stands, and is heard loud and clear by the Iowa Hawkeyes. By making a gift or gift commitment to the endowed Hawkeye Legacy Fund in addition to your annual support, you can ensure that your help for the Hawkeyes will continue far into the future.
