Endow Iowa

Endow Iowa was created to enhance the quality of life for the citizens of this state through increased philanthropic activity by encouraging new investments to existing community foundations across Iowa.


The original program included two components: (1) tax credits to donors (an active program) and (2) matching grants to community foundations or affiliates (a program that is no longer active).
