“Keep the daily gears running!”

The General Fund is the day-to-day operating fund of the Iowa Genealogical Society. Donations to this fund, like oil on gears, assist the IGS with all normal operating expenses including salaries, administrative costs, equipment maintenance and purchases, facility rental, postage, and office supplies. Without donations and outstanding, dedicated volunteers, IGS simply could not continue.



Create or give to a Memorial Fund for a loved one. You can select the amount and tell IGS who the memorial is for.


Honor your ancestor by making them a part of Iowa history.

Add your ancestor to the IGS Memorial Wall. For $175 you can put up to 40 characters on the Memorial Wall in our front entry for all to see. A great gift or way to remember a loved one. Panel four is open for submissions. You may download an application if you prefer to mail to IGS.



Donate to reduce the mortgage on the IGS building at 628 E Grand Ave!



“Passing the baton to the next generation!”

The Iowa Genealogical Society Endowment Fund has been established to provide ongoing income to the Library. Donations to this fund are deposited, and the interest on the money is used by the library. This provides stability for the present, and certainty for the future. Since only the interest is used for expenses, this fund provides a great foundation for future generations to enjoy all the hard work and resources of today.
