Endow Iowa Grants

 

The Iowa Council of Foundations was selected by the Iowa Department of Economic Development (now the Iowa Economic Development Authority) as the lead entity to coordinate the Endow Iowa Grant Program during its existence. The grant program provided matching funds to new and existing community foundation groups organized in, or themselves, a Qualified Community Foundations to address community needs.  The Endow Iowa Matching Grant program no longer operates.
