Ways to Give

Whether you’re a cyclist, paddler, farmer or outdoor enthusiast, we know you care about Iowa as much as we do.

Together, help make a lasting impact to protect important Iowa places, speak and act on behalf of nature and pass forward a healthy, beautiful Iowa for future generations.

With a donation to INHF, you can:

  • Create new wildlife areas, trails, parks and natural spaces
  • Build and restore habitat for migratory birds and other animals
  • Foster the next generation of conservation professionals through INHF’s internship program
  • Clean Iowa’s waterways through watershed protection

INHF’s work depends on private support from people like you: individuals, families, businesses and foundations. INHF is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit. We receive no direct government funding.

Gifts of land

We often help landowners consider the long-term future of their land.

Gifts that provide lifetime income

Your major gift might be able to return income to you or a loved one for a period of years or over a lifetime. Many INHF friends have found Charitable Gift Annuities to be a satisfying way to give, and they may provide tax benefits as well as income. Learn more.

It’s easier than you might think to do your charitable giving with stock or rollover gifts from personal IRA accounts.
