Our Gift to You

FREE Estate Planning Consultation

The Foundation has partnered with renowned estate planning lawyer Johni Hays of Thompson & Associates for this valuable service. Interested clients (can be a couple, family or an individual) meet with Johni once per month to review and/or develop an estate plan. There is no pressure to leave a gift to anyone, and you can stop at any time. Several satisfied clients have finished the process so there are timeslots available! Email [email protected] or call us at 515-974-8927 to set up your first meeting. Learn more.

Carma Mohler Grants

Hunger relief grants coming soon

With spring upon us (even though it doesn't always feel like it), it means Carma Mohler Grant season is coming up! Earlier this month, IUMF caught up with 2023 grant recipient Lamoni Food Pantry to learn more about their programs and how their grant funds were used.

If you are part of a similar organization fighting hunger in Iowa, consider applying for a Carma Mohler hunger relief grant when they open July 1st.

Thank you scholarship applicants!

The Foundation's Scholarship Committee is hard at work reading this year's scholarship applications! All applicants will be notified via email about their status prior to June 1st. Thank you to everyone who took the time to apply! We appreciate your patience as we (and you) work with a new software provider this year.

Our scholarship program would not be possible without our generous donors! If you are interested in starting a scholarship fund or donating to an existing one, email us at [email protected] or visit our GIVE page.
