The growth of Upper Iowa University is greatly supported by generous donors and alumni who value and cherish this great institution. The Class Gift initiative was developed as a way to encourage students to embrace a philanthropic spirit and begin leaving their legacy upon graduation. The UIU Student Philanthropy Council (SPC) is proud to lead this effort.

In recognition of a Class Gift graduates will receive a UIU Philanthropy Cord. In addition, student donors will be recognized by President Duffy during the 2021 Commencement Ceremonies. Gifts are directed to the UIU Reunion Endowment Fund, which support alumni gatherings such as Homecoming, class reunions, and other Peacock social activities. The SPC suggests a donation of $20.22, however a contribution of any amount is sincerely appreciated.

The class of 2021 raised $3,460. Let’s see if this year’s class can raise $5,000! To give online, visit and select the designation “2022 Class Gift.”

Big thanks to these generous class of 2022 student supporters:
