Gifts of any amount, whether through lifetime giving or annual giving, are vital to the University Museums and the future of Iowa State University. All donors to University Museums are considered members for the fiscal year in which their gift was made. Donors to the University Museums’ most prestigious donor recognition societies believe in creating opportunities that will aesthetically and educationally transform student lives at Iowa State. Their gifts of $15,000 or above are considered lifetime giving. 

Cumulative giving, bequests and other deferred gifts qualify for potential inclusion in University Museum recognition societies.
