Organized in 1983, the Iowa Library Association Foundation awarded its first continuing education grant of $250 just three years later. Since 1986 the dollars awarded by ILAF have grown to more than $145,000. The more than 70 awards made by ILAF since 1986 have funded scholarships, continuing education workshops and the Endowed Speaker at the ILA Annual Conferences.
ILAF is a 501c3 organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by current law.
