The Iowa-Grant Educational Foundation (IGEF) welcomes you to learn about our mission, our accomplishments and hopefully, find a lasting and meaningful way for us to connect with you and for you to become engaged with our efforts.
The Iowa-Grant Educational Foundation was established in 1999 as a charitable support organization for the Iowa-Grant School District. It is governed by a group of local residents who are committed to helping the district achieve and maintain excellence in its programs, students and staff. The Foundation provides an avenue to shape and support new, exciting and innovative educational enrichment initiatives, as well as to support students in their pursuit of post-secondary education.
We are pleased to present this philanthropic opportunity to all Iowa-Grant residents, alumni, staff and supporters to assist/benefit/promote/aid this institution that has had a memorable and positive impact on so many lives for over fifty years.
"The Formation of a School District and
the 50 Years that Followed."
Iowa-Grant School District celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2010. After this successful event, the Iowa-Grant Educational Foundation put together a 312 page book with 1500 photos, detailing the 50+ years of the district’s history. Included in the book is the history of each country and town school (43 in all) that preceded the district formation, followed by how and why the district came to be, the construction, dedication, decades of school activities, over 200 photos from the reunion, listings of all students, faculty, board members, staff and ending with a comprehensive index by individual name.
All proceeds of this book go to the Foundation to provide scholarships and school projects.
