We are preparing to celebrate an important milestone!
In 2026 the IMA will celebrate 50 years of service to Iowa's museums.
We're building an Endowed Fund to celebrate!

The Iowa Museum Association (est. 1976) is the only professional association representing and supporting museums, historical societies, and all other collecting institutions in the state of Iowa. Through advocacy, professional development, and networking, IMA strengthens institutions through the preservation and presentation of Iowa’s rich culture, by advocating for museums as educators and community anchors, and highlighting their significant contributions to local and state economies. We support 285 Iowa museums and all those who work and volunteer in them. No other organization provides the programs and services that IMA provides.
As the IMA prepares to celebrate its 50th birthday in 2026, we are establishing an endowed fund to ensure IMA can continue to provide services for another 50 years. We will raise $10,000 each year for the next five years to establish a $50,000 endowed fund. This permanent fund will provide long term support for the IMA’s programs.
Look ahead with us - Join the $20.26 Club.
