Old Capitol Sertoma is a service club of members from the Iowa City-Coralville area. The club's stated civic goal is to provide assistance and aid to those with hearing, speech, and other communicative disorders. In addition to assisting individuals with hearing and speech devices, the club locally provides funding and assistance for programs and devices at agencies and organizations such as the Wendell Johnson Speech and Hearing Clinic, the Center for Disabilities and Development at the University of Iowa, the Englert and Riverside Theatres, the University of Iowa theatres, and the Iowa City Public Library. The club's other civic purpose is to educate regarding our country's national heritage through sponsorship of an essay contest each year for eighth grade students in Johnson County that focuses on current issues that tie into our country's national heritage.  Old Capitol Sertoma also provided funding for the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts’ assisted listening devices.

Owned and operated by the City of Coralville, the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts is dedicated to enriching the community and contributing to the vitality of Coralville by offering an accessible, affordable venue for a variety of performances, presentations, and public and private events.  The 472 seat theater opened August 26, 2011 and has hosted performances from City Circle Acting Company, Orchestra Iowa, Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre, Dan Knight, Lola Astanova, Lorie Line, Judy Carmichael, Jim McDonough, Nolte Academy of Dance, and many others.  Coralville schools are also able to use the Center free of charge up to three times per year; 16 school events took place at the Center in the 2012-2013 school year. The Center was named 2012 Member of the Year by the Iowa City/Coralville Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.
