Representatives from the Iowa College Foundation (ICF) were in the Cedar Rapids area on September 27 and 28 to honor two of its supporters for their contributions and commitment to private higher education in Iowa. Representatives of ICF member colleges presented 10 year plaques to Diamond V Mills, Inc. and RuffaloCODY.
Randy Ramlo, President and CEO of United Fire and Casualty Company serves as chairman for the annual area campaign. He joins other business leaders across Iowa who, as volunteers for ICF, help raise awareness and resources for private higher education in this area and around the state.
Now in its 60th year of service to its member institutions, the Iowa College Foundation is an association of the 23 independent colleges and universities in Iowa. ICF, whose member institutions enroll over 48,000 students annually, represents a united funds approach to financing independent higher education in Iowa. Last year, ICF raised more than $1.8 million from nearly 700 corporations, foundations and individuals. Most of the funds raised by ICF are distributed to students in the form of scholarships. Nationally, ICF ranks first in number of donors and second in the total gift income raised among 32 similar college foundations in the United States.
