Harkin Institute for Public Policy & Citizen Engagement

Gifts to the Harkin Institute for Public Policy and Citizen Engagement keep our spirit of nonpartisan, future-focused programming and study alive and thriving.

Your support makes it possible for the Institute to provide students, scholars, the community, the state, and the nation with access to a treasure trove of congressional archival resources, rigorous nonpartisan public policy research and study, and dynamic, thoughtful events addressing the major public policy issues of our time.

Here are the options for designating your donation:

Support the Harkin Institute Operations
Operational funding provides essential support of the Institute’s operating budget.  Support of the Harkin Institute operations address the most immediate needs of the Institute including programming, research, events, and day-to-day expenses.

Support a legacy: Harkin Institute Endowment
You may permanently invest in the Harkin Institute through a gift to the endowment.  When the market value of the invested principal increases, so does the annual payout - providing the Institute with an ongoing source of funding that will grow over time.

Support students: Harkin Institute D.C. Student Experience Fund
A gift to this fund provides financial assistance for a Drake undergraduate student with financial need who has secured a summer internship in a congressional office, government agency, or nonprofit organization in Washington, D.C.  Students are selected through an application process by the Harkin Institute D.C. Experience Scholarship Committee.

Support political history: Iowa Caucus Collection Archives
Be part of history and support the collection, preservation, and cataloging of historical artifacts associated with the Iowa caucus. This one-of-a-kind historic collection allows members of the public who are interested in presidential politics to explore and better understand the history and significance of the Iowa caucus.
