Major Grants

Drake University recently received a $300,000 gift from Hy-Vee, Inc., as part of the university’s distinctlyDrake campaign. The donation will go toward the construction of the Morgan E. Cline Atrium for Pharmacy and Science. Hy-Vee’s gift will create a learning commons on the first floor. … The vision for the transformation of the Botanical Center into the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden got closer to its $11.6 million capital campaign goal, thanks to a recent $980,000 Vision Iowa grant.
