We Are Phil - Faculty/Staff Giving at the University of Iowa


Who is Phil? Phil is short for philanthropy, and at the UI, Phil is our nickname for everyone who donates to the university, as well as all those who benefit from private support. That means you are Phil too.

EVERY gift matters.

Your participation is important. Each person who gives counts equally as ONE person who supports the UI’s mission.

ANY amount counts.

…even if you can only give a little. Imagine what we can accomplish at the UI if EVERYONE gives what they can!

EACH yearAnnual gifts from UI faculty and staff can provide a steady stream of support to sustain our innovative programs, push forward groundbreaking research, and empower our amazing students, faculty, and staff.

ALL over campus. Private support makes an impact EVERYWHERE at the 
UI—and you can make a gift to support ANYTHING on campus YOU think is important.

We Are Phil

We Are Phil week is happening on the UI campus September 28-October 2, 2015--our third annual celebration of faculty/staff philanthropy on the UI campus! It’s always a good time to “Be Phil,” though… make a gift any time between now and June 30, 2016, to be included in this year’s participation count. Thank you!
