PLANT A SEED,
WATCH US GROW

Iowa Sister States gives you the opportunity to make a meaningful and lasting gift to the continuation of programs which enhance our efforts in citizen diplomacy. If you or your organization has a year end surplus you wish to invest, please consider giving to the work of  Iowa Sister States.

As we move forward from the pandemic, our mission is more important than ever. Therefore, we have established the Iowa Sister States Endowment Fund with the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines in order to continue our efforts to promote citizen diplomacy for years to come.
