There are unique and creative ways to make a donation, whether you want to leave a lasting legacy or be a part of this year's Fair. Gifts can take many forms and are welcome at every level. The deadline to make sure your item is in place by the start of the 2020 Iowa State Fair is March 31, 2020.

Block by Block - Located in the Richard O. Jacobson Exhibition Center, a large colorful barn quilt represents Iowa’s heritage and agriculture offering six levels of giving.

Building for the Future - Located in the Richard O. Jacobson Exhibition Center, you can leave a personal legacy engraved in granite on the west side of the building or have an engraved plaque placed on the back of a seat.

Buy a Brick - These bricks are used to help complete walkways in 15 different locations. Choose your location and what you would like engraved, it's a perfect way to leave a permeant legacy.

Courtyard of Celebration - Located on the east side of the Patty and Jim Cownie Cultural Center - celebrate a Fair memory with a personal message on an engraved charcoal concrete paver in the Courtyard’s plaza.

Growing Our Future - Located in Ruan Plaza there are 7 levels of giving. Your inscription will be placed on a “leaf” and then displayed with the other “leaves” creating a beautiful, colorful donor wall. 

Legacy Terrace - Located south of the Grandstand, in the Legacy Terrace you can either engrave a granite paver or place a plaque at the base of the tree.

Shine On - With multiple lamp posts across the Fairgrounds, your donation will help light up the Fair!
