Our Mission and Visions

Vision:  Our ultimate goal is to find a cure for PKU

Mission:  The mission of the Iowa PKU Foundation is to help Iowan PKU families to secure adequate nutritional, educational, and emotional support to enhance their lives.

Nutrition: Formula and food coverage are the first priorities of the Iowa PKU Foundation.  Through legislative action with our collaborative efforts, we will fight for PKU families to secure the necessary funding for their formula and low-protein food.

Education: Understanding the dietary nuances for PKU families is imperative for a balanced life.  We offer a brochure, web-site, and a newsletter to support the Iowa PKU community. 

Family Support: It is also critical that PKU families share their experiences with each other.  Therefore, it is our goal to offer networking opportunities including annual summer and winter get-togethers, as well as e-mail links in order to facilitate sharing and caring.

Funding for PKU Research: The Iowa PKU Foundation is committed to the support of appropriate research initiatives to better understand PKU and eventually find a cure.  A portion of our fundraising efforts supports PKU research.

Financial Support: The Iowa PKU Foundation is a not-for-profit organization qualified for tax-deductible contributions under the Internal Revenue Code. We receive financial support from our members, the community, businesses, corporations and individuals.  Please feel free to contribute to our worthy cause.  Send  a check or money order to:
