Support Your Student's Iona Experience

Throughout Iona's history, generous contributions from family, friends, and alumni have driven our institution's growth and success. You can help carry this legacy forward by supporting today's students through the Parent and Family Fund.

  • Academic programs
  • State-of-the-art facilities
