Through collaborative leadership we supplied a pipeline of $812 million in new capital investment projects to strengthen and diversify the assets in Iowa. But beyond big number private-sector prospects we also work with the progressive small businesses, nonprofits, civic leaders, workforce, education institutions, utilities, transportation, housing, etc to maximize productivity and long-term prosperity in our evolving economic landscape.

Foundation Update: 40 Nonprofits to make $2.9M direct economic impact

A Foundation is a different kind of organization. It does not put out fires. It does not rescue animals. Nor does it educate young people on how to use new technology. However, it does create and grow financial resources in perpetuity to help nonprofits fulfill community needs. In 2010 $95K was awarded to 40 community organizations/projects across Tama County with an economic impact of $2.9M. Many of them are still working to raise the money necessary to complete the projects. Please see if any projects fit the types of causes to which your family or business contributes.
