Iowa State University’s multiyear fundraising campaign, “Forever True, For Iowa State,” has raised $1.2 billion, which is 80% of its goal of raising $1.5 billion by 2021. During the 2019 ?scal year, which ended June 30, the Iowa State University Foundation raised $182 million to support the students, faculty, facilities and programs of the university, the foundation announced. Fiscal 2019 was also the third-largest fundraising year in the foundation’s history. More than 6,700 students received donor-funded scholarships, and the number of endowed chairs, professorships and faculty fellowships grew to a total of 209. In addition, donations to the Student Innovation Center, which is currently under construction, and a $17 million gift from the late Don Soults of Virginia are supporting Iowa State’s innovation and entrepreneurship efforts. The original campaign goal was $1.1 billion, a target that was reached during this past fiscal year, two years ahead of schedule. To capture the campaign’s tremendous momentum, the target was increased by $400 million and extended another year.
