Support Iowa State University in developing innovative solutions that change our world for the better.

Be part of something bigger. We’re building a community of Iowa State supporters to advance the visionary people and projects that will transform our world. We want to hear from you about what matters most.


FOOD FOR ALL

By 2050, our planet will be home to 2 billion more people than today. Can our food supply keep up? Iowa State scientists are designing roving robots that will enable the world to grow more food on less land, with few resources, in an ever-changing environment.


A HUNGER-FREE WORLD

How can we fight world hunger, even amid a pandemic that only makes matters worse? An Iowa State researcher developed an online network that connects excess food at restaurants and grocery stores with families in need.


SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES

Student teams from Iowa State and Makerere University lead on-the-ground projects that create practical solutions for communities in Uganda. Up next: a pedal-powered grain machine that cleans maize at Kamuli District schools.


OUR BEST ‘NEW NORMAL’

As the fight against COVID-19 began, people in veterinary diagnostics, design, chemistry, psychology, mechanical engineering and other fields across Iowa State’s campus stepped up to solve epic problems.

HELP MOVE WHAT MATTERS

Projects like these need people like you because momentum builds person by person. We can transform the landscape of what’s possible.
