We can’t wait to share our excitement about UIU Giving Day. Take a sneak peek at what we have in store for the upcoming weeks. With your help on April 27, we can step up to the challenge and show our Peacock pride!


Become a volunteer

Volunteering for our Giving Day is a great way to stay in touch with your classmates while making a positive impact. And there are many ways to be involved - be our social media ambassador, do a Facebook challenge, give and ask your peers to do the same. If you would like to #StepUpUIU, please let us know!



Step Up to the challenge and be part of Upper Iowa University’s very first Giving Day beginning on April 27! Show your support as we work to reach our goal of 160 donors in 36 hours in honor of UIU’s 160th Anniversary. UIU Giving Day will highlight more than 15 unique giving challenges that will be unveiled as we near the big day. We ask that all alumni, friends, faculty and staff and students show their support. You can also help spread the word by sharing the event on your own social media accounts. #StepUpUIU

Why does my gift matter?

Your participation is what is most important, not the amount. Each year, alumni participation rates figure into national rankings like U.S. News and World Report. Collectively, your support influences corporations and foundations that make their yearly funding decisions to UIU based on the number of alumni donors. When you give back, it reflects very highly in the opportunity we provide to our UIU students and the degree you earn.

What else can I do to help?

Step Up and spread the word! Tell your fellow Peacocks about UIU Giving Day by using the hashtag #StepUpUIU.

How much can I give?
