Qualified Foundations

 

To participate in the Endow Iowa or County Endowment Fund Programs, a community foundation needs to be a "Qualified Community Foundation" or affiliated with such an entity.  (Specifically, to be eligible for the County Endowment Fund Program, the community foundation organization must serve at least a county wide area.)  This designation either means that the community foundation is confirmed in compliance with National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations.


The (Iowa) community foundations/affiliates listed below are eligible to participate in the Endow Iowa Tax Credit program.  Not all of the affiliates listed below are eligible for County Endowment Funds.  For a listing of those eligible for County Endowment Funds, please click here
