Impact Giving

We invite you to strengthen your commitment to IPR and consider giving at one of our Leadership Circle levels.

Impact giving allows Iowa Public Radio to expand, explore and create more intelligent, enriching and entertaining content both on-air and online. When you give at this level, you not only provide annual financial support but also foundational support that enables IPR’s growth. We are deeply grateful to the members of our Leadership Circle for their generosity and commitment to our mission. We welcome you to join in the advancement of public radio programming and outreach in Iowa.

Supporters looking to make a greater impact with their contributions have various options such as joining our Leadership Circle or contributing to special initiatives and projects.

Leadership Circle

As a contributing partner with Iowa Public Radio, you can feel proud you are strengthening our unique and high-quality programming, sustaining a service vital to Iowans throughout the state and investing in innovative ways to deliver public radio programming.

There are many ways you can join the Leadership Circle. You can contribute gifts of cash or stock, a gift from your IRA or donor-advised fund or donate your vehicle. Your contributions are recognized with numerous benefits at three different levels:

  • Leadership Circle: $1,200 – $4,999

If you have joined the Heritage Society by sharing with us your intent to support IPR with a future gift from your estate, you also enjoy the benefits of the Leadership Circle.

Impact Giving

Iowa Public Radio has identified strategic initiatives that we will advance the mission of public radio as we head into a second century of service to Iowans.

The Innovation Fund

Special funding enables creativity and innovation at Iowa Public Radio. This allows us to develop new projects and programs with the potential to better serve listeners and develop new, more diverse audiences.

The Journalism Impact Fund

Dedicated funding to the IPR newsroom ensures ample resources for our reporters to respond quickly during emerging news events and keep Iowans informed.

We are pleased to share the names of these donors who helped launch this fund and invite you to join them.

  • Warren & Beverly Madden
  • Nora & David Everett

Second Century Endowment Fund

Endowed funds establish a foundation for the next century of Iowa Public Radio programming. Endowment earnings provide a permanent source of revenue and can support critical, but hard to fund behind-the-scenes operations in radio broadcasting.

For more information on impact giving, please contact us. We welcome the opportunity to work with you to help identify specific areas of interest where you can make an impact and understand how you'd prefer to be recognized for your generosity.
