ABOUT US

CREATED TO SUPPORT IOWA’S
GAMING INDUSTRY

The Iowa Gaming Association (IGA) is a nonprofit organization that was created in 1999 to support the state’s gaming industry. The IGA monitors legislative issues regarding the gaming industry in Iowa and throughout the country. It is an advocate for commercial gaming in Iowa and communicates timely and accurate information about gaming to its members, the public and Iowa’s legislating bodies.

2020-2021 ANNUAL REPORT

GIVING BACK

Gaming Integral for Building Communities Through Philanthropy!

The latest Building Communities Through Philanthropy annual report of grantmaking highlights how using a portion of gaming tax revenue results in tremendous benefit and impact. Thanks to the legislators’ vision more than 15 years ago, the 2020-2021 comprehensive report is impressive and shows the impact of the county endowment fund program grants and casino grantmaking.

Grantmaking activities support each of Iowa’s 99 counties and are a catalyst for significant philanthropic and public-private partnerships. These grants support various needs in Iowa communities, including human services, education, health, the arts, the environment, and community/public benefit.

Our Mission

We are united in the effort to promote the positive economic impact the gaming industry has on our state.
