Ways to Give & Contribute

The Prairie School Foundation is the steward of all gifts to the Foundation. All donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Please consult your tax advisor.

  • Gifts of Cash and Check
  • Memorial / Honorarium Donations - Make a lasting tribute to a family member or loved one.
  • Matching Gifts - Take this opportunity if your employer has a matching gift program and increase the impact of your contribution. Local and employers like Rockwell, Pepsico, Transamerica, Alliant and many more have a matching gift program. This means you can double or even triple the impact of your gift.
  • Planned and Deferred Gifts - Donors can support Prairie by naming the Prairie School Foundation in their will or life insurance policy or by establishing an endowment or gift annuity. 

The We Care Endowment Fund was established in the spring of 2006 by Dot Pospischil, a Social Studies teacher at Prairie High School.  Its mission is to help any faculty, staff, or student of Prairie High School who is experiencing misfortune or tragedy.  A board for the Endowment was established to increase awareness and funds available.

If you are interested in making a gift or finding out more about this fund, please contact Operations Manager, Tina DuBois, at 319-270-4134 or tdubois@crprairie.org.

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs that can double the impact of your charitable contribution to the Prairie School Foundation. Matching gifts are counted toward your giving level in the Donor Recognition Clubs. Matching gift funds are a critical part of the fundraising program at the Foundation. When making a gift to the Prairie School Foundation, please remember to check with your employer if they will match your contribution. Contact your personnel or human resources office to obtain the appropriate form. Complete the form and return it with your contribution to the Prairie School Foundation.
The Prairie School Foundation is grateful for gifts from matching gift companies and the many donors who submit matching gift forms. If you have any questions on the matching gift program at the Prairie School Foundation, please call 319-848-5224
Please send your contribution and matching gift form to:
