There are 15 youth philanthropy groups across the state of Iowa, many of which are sponsored or funded by ICoF members. ICoF believes in youth philanthropy because these programs educate young people about philanthropy to:
- Inspire future givers
- Become future board members
- Staff foundations and nonprofits
- Actively participate in our communities
Iowa Youth Philanthropy Conference
In an effort to support this important work, ICoF has partnered with several of our members to host the Iowa Youth Philanthropy Conference annually. While the global pandemic put those conferences on hold for a couple of years, we were back in 2022!
