We Are Phil Crowdfunding

During this year’s We Are Phil campaign, you could direct your gift to the UI cause of your choice, or support one or more of our special We Are Phil crowdfunding projects, spearheaded by Iowa’s faculty and staff.

While We Are Phil week is over, you can still visit GOLDrush to learn about other crowdfunding opportunities.


Who is Phil?

Phil stands for philanthropy. At Iowa, Phil is everyone who gives to the University of Iowa and everyone who benefits from those gifts. That means YOU are Phil, too!

And your gift matters . . . even if you can only give a little. Each person who donates makes a difference, so imagine what we can accomplish at Iowa if we all give what we can!




We Are Phil

Our fifth-annual We Are Phil faculty/staff giving campaign was held during the week of October 16 to October 20. It celebrated the power of Phil on campus and encouraged faculty and staff to give to the UI people, programs, and projects that are closest to their heart.

Any gifts made before June 30, 2018, will count toward this campaign, so please donate to Iowa today. Together, we can change lives. Thank you for joining us!
