Inspire the Next Generation of Iowa National Guard Leaders

Mission of the INGOA Foundation: Support and improve the readiness and capabilities of the Iowa National Guard by providing educational and professional development opportunities.

We accomplish this Mission primarily by providing Grants to junior officers and warrant officers to attend Professional Development events at the State and National Conferences.

  • In 2019, we sponsored 26 junior officers at the State Conference & Iowa National Guard Recognition Dinner
  • In 2019, we sponsored 6 junior officers at the National Conference

Thanks to 80+ donors & many dedicated volunteers, since inception, we’ve been able to provide:

  • 99.8% of contributions applied to professional development efforts
  • 170 officers awarded Grants to INGOA Professional Development events
  • 44 officers awarded Grants to NGAUS Professional Development events
  • 65 Soldiers and Airmen awarded Academic Scholarships

The following testimony is from one of the 2019 NGAUS Conference attendees:

“Overall, the experience was great! My favorite part about the event was listening to the unique speakers (both military and civilian). I really enjoyed Gen Lengyel and COL Fowler. I was very touched by Jack Adler, he is a Jewish concentration camp survivor, honorably served in the US Army years, and is now a historian. I also liked the OPD’s for the building of relationships and ideas with members from the other states. Most importantly, all of the sessions provided the opportunity to learn something.” – 1LT William Doan
