LAS receives $145 million endowment

September 14, 2017

Iowa State University announces that a gift reported in January will result in a new endowment of approximately $145 million to support the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The endowment is made possible through a gift from an anonymous donor couple of an equity stake in Curriculum Associates, LLC, which recently entered into a capital partnership.

The permanent endowment will generate between $5-6 million in revenue each year on a perpetual basis for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the very heart of learning and discovery at Iowa State.
