Grants Update: Mansfield Foundation awards grants to a record high number of Tama County projects

“There are a number of wonderful projects happening in Tama County, and we are happy to support them.”

Larry Schlue, President
Mansfield Foundation

The Wesley and Irene Mansfield Charitable Foundation based in Belle Plaine Iowa’s mission is to financially invest in education and economic development of the region. It is also one of the top giving Foundations in Iowa. And this year a record high five Tama County projects received grant support totaling over $55,000. We deeply appreciate Mansfield Foundation’s recognition of Tama County nonprofits’ vision for building a better future, as well as the nonprofits’ leadership who are proactively shaping Tama County’s future to benefit the greater good. Recipients for 2010 include:

  1. Tama-Toledo Highway 30 Bypass signage
  2. Dysart Agricultural Museum and Interpretive Center
  3. Haven School House Restoration
  4. South Tama Recreation Trail Enhancement
  5. United Way

Larry explained that they are also aware of other Tama County projects that they hope to support as soon as progress is a little further along. Deadline for the Mansfield Foundation grant is typically May 31 of each year. Contact us if you are interested in finding out more about this (or other financing resources) for Tama County projects. The annual Tama County Grant Writing workshop is expected to be offered again in January 2011.
