UNI Foundation marks second consecutive record fundraising year

For the second consecutive year, the University of Northern Iowa broke its record for highest annual fundraising total in history, raising $43.1 million.

Total fundraising from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021 increased nearly 12% over the previous fiscal year. Success was due in part to record giving from corporations and foundations, with $10.7 million of the UNI Foundation’s fundraising coming from these organizations. In all, 9,300 alumni and donors gave to support UNI.

“Each gift from the Panther family is making a better student experience and a strong UNI for generations to come,” said Jan Bittner, outgoing chair of the UNI Foundation Board of Trustees.
