CultureALL™ is a Des Moines based-non-profit organization that involves Iowans in learning about other world cultures. These discovery-filled experiences strengthen understanding and appreciation of one another in our daily lives. CultureALL in the Classroom provides what text books and research projects cannot: real-life interactions with people from other cultures. CultureALL in the Community presents unique events that make Central Iowa a vibrant and attractive place for Global Citizens to live, study and work.

CULTUREALL™ is a great way to show my students there is a different world outside of Urbandale.

If you have volunteered or donated to CultureALL, we invite you to share your story of any you support our work, by posting a short essay (200 words minimum) on the #MyGivingStory tab of the #GivingTuesday Facbook page.  Be sure to include our URL (www.CultureALL.orgin your essay
