Iowa State Chapter P.E.O.

Welcomes You

Iowa P.E.O. members proudly honor the legacy of our Founders provided with the 1869 establishment of one of the earliest societies for women, on the campus of Iowa Wesleyan University at Mount Pleasant, Iowa. The Iowa State Chapter was organized in 1893 with 40 chapters and with philanthropy as the motivating force. Today Iowa chapters number just under 400 with nearly 19,000 active members.

We are women who celebrate the advancement of women; educate women through scholarships, grants, awards and loans; and motivate each other to achieve our highest aspirations. Membership comes with personal commitment and responsibility for promoting the educational purposes of our organization.
