ABOUT US

SUPPORTing IOWA’S GAMING INDUSTRY

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

GIVING BACK

Gaming BUILDS 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 benefits and impact. Thanks to the legislators’ vision more than 15 years ago, the 2022-2023 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 catalyze 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

To promote the benefits of Iowa’s casino gaming industry and advocate mutually agreed upon positions. The IGA is comprised of 19 commercial riverboat and racetrack casinos across Iowa. We are united in the effort to promote the gaming industry’s positive economic impact on our state. While the membership of the IGA is highly diverse, we speak with a unified voice in accomplishing our mission.
