    Secure Your Legacy

    Establishing your own named charitable fund does not require great wealth and it isn’t complicated. You have the opportunity to distribute gifts during your lifetime or to leave a lasting legacy – or both.

    Through the Foundation, you can help create opportunities for students that reach beyond the regular budget limitations of the school system. Your support will be an investment in the future of our children, our schools, and in Ankeny itself.

    Gifts to the Ankeny School Foundation may be made in a variety of ways, including:

    • Annual Gift, an amount pledged to be given for a specific period of time;
    • Direct Gift of cash or securities;
    • Estate, a donation through an estate;
    • Memorial Gift, to honor a deceased individual;
    • Matching Gift, your employer may have a matching gift program that can increase your donation;
    • Special Project Gift, donation for a special project or to a current campaign.

    Online Donations

    The quickest and easiest way for many people to support the Foundation is with an online donation.
