Make your pledge before December 31, 2023, to be recognized as a founding member of the Phelan’s Giving Circle!

Become a member of Phelan’s Giving Circle (Phelan’s Circle) to see iJAG’s vision for the future unfold! Phelan’s Circle donors pledge to donate $1,000 per year for five years. Recurring giving supports current program needs while also fostering long-term planning, innovation and ongoing development. 

Laurie Phelan, iJAG’s founder and former CEO, led the organization from its humble beginnings in 1999 with 6 programs to 155 programs serving more than 7,000 students in 2023. Over Phelan’s 24-year career she inspired, motivated and empowered others to invest in Iowa’s future by prioritizing the needs of young people. By joining Phelan’s Circle you will help to carry on her legacy of supporting “Each Student, No Matter What.” Phelan will serve as honorary chair for the inaugural year of the giving circle. 

Phelan’s Circle members are recognized on the iJAG website, annual report and at special events. Members will receive access to special events and exclusive communications.
