Our Mission

To create an annual event bringing visibility, recognizing friends, and securing resources for college scholarships.

The Black Tie Harvest is Iowa Western Community College’s largest single fundraising event, raising more than 1.9 million dollars during the past 18 years the Black Tie Harvest for Scholarships event provies internal scholarship support to IWCC students. With nearly 70 percent of IWCC students qualifying for financial assistance, the need for scholarship support is greater than ever.

Proceeds from the 2017 Black Tie Harvest will directly benefit the Iowa Western Pottawattamie Promise scholarship fund. Pottawattamie Promise is a joint initiative of Iowa Western, AKSARBEN Foundation, Iowa West Foundation and Peter Kiewit Foundation to improve post-secondary education preparation, access and completion so that students can obtain good jobs, earn competitive wages and contribute to our community. Each year, the initiative awards full scholarships to select Pottawattamie county graduates.Money raised by the 2017 Black Tie Harvest will provide essential financial support to Pottawattamie Promise scholars as they pursue their educational goals.
