GOLDEN PLEDGE: A Presidential Partnership for Student Success
Former University of Iowa President Sally Mason developed a program that doubles the impact of endowed scholarship gifts. Newly hired University of Iowa President J. Bruce Harreld is continuing the Golden Pledge program which matches the payout from new, privately funded endowed undergraduate scholarships of $100,000 or more. Existing endowed undergraduate scholarships increased by $100,000 or more also will qualify for the match.
For example, a newly established scholarship of $200,000 would generate earnings of approximately $9,000. The Golden Pledge would match the $9,000 pay-out, doubling your gift impact for that year.
The program will run through December 2017 and is designed to significantly increase the number of scholarships for undergraduate students at Iowa.
