The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization. Focusing on service to veterans, service members and communities, the Legion evolved from a group of war-weary veterans of World War I into one of the most influential nonprofit groups in the United States.
The Ankeny Area Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to the promotion and development of our members within the community.
The Ankeny Area Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity. Neither the society nor the museum receive direct public funding from any government or municipal entity – we keep your history alive through yearly membership renewals, periodic fundraising events, and donations from the community.
The Ankeny Friends of the Arts started as an arts program for the Ankeny community and the norther Des Moines metro area in 1981. In 2002 we were presented with a great opportunity to expand and the Ankeny Art Center was established. Throughout the building of this facility we have been able to offer more opportunities for the community and now we average over 8,000 visitors each year.
At Ankeny First, we believe that people want a life with meaning. We are here to guide you past the obstacle of more, and direct you toward a meaningful life. Our method begins by taking a step in worship. Next, you take a step to connect with others in a small group. Finally, you take a step to respond in service. Then repeat.
Through courage, honor, and integrity, provide safety and security to everyone in our community.
