Hawkeye Birthday Club

The Hawkeye Birthday Club involves young Hawkeyes of all ages in the life of the University of Iowa. Each year, club members will receive either a Hawkeye-themed gift or special birthday card.


The enrollment fee of $25 per child is one-time only. However, you must maintain your UIAA membership as an annual or sustaining life member for the duration of the child’s eligibility (until age 16). Expired membership may mean an interruption in the Hawkeye Birthday Club. Upon renewal of your UIAA membership, the child will begin receiving gifts again.

Remember: You must be a current UIAA member to take advantage of this benefit (membership will be verified). To join now, click here. Unsure of your membership status? Check here.

Birthday Gifts

A child’s age at the time of enrollment will determine the first gift received. Within the first week of the birthday month, we will send children either a Hawkeye-themed gift (on even-numbered birthday years) or a birthday card (on odd-numbered birthday years) so that they arrive as soon as possible.
