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

Secure Your Legacy

The Ankeny School Foundation can help you make scholarships possible for graduates of Ankeny's two high schools. The Foundation accepts contributions and memorials, invests the funds, and distributes the scholarships in accordance with the donor’s request. To reach as many Ankeny students as possible, annual scholarship funds are administered by Dollars for Scholars.

The Foundation holds several funds to assist Ankeny students and honor the memory of donors, including:

  • Dick and Irene Basham Memorial
  • Michael Burright Memorial
  • Care Initiatives for Keith Hopkins Memorial
  • Marissa Paca Memorial
  • Scott Vencil Memorial

Following is a complete list of the scholarship funds currently held by the Foundation and their recent recipients.

  • The Ankeny School Foundation appreciates the support from the Ankeny community and alumni. We are here to help you with all aspect of your giving experience. If you have questions about becoming a donor that have not been answered, please contact us by phone at 515-289-3950 or e-mail
