Mission of the Keokuk County Community Endowment Foundation:

Our mission is to foster private giving, strengthen service providers and improve the condition of the communities and other areas of interest within Keokuk County.  To these ends, the Keokuk County Community Endowment Foundation (KCCEF) will promote endowment building, grant-making, organizational collaboration and public leadership for the benefit of all Keokuk County.

Keokuk County Disaster Recovery Fund

On behalf of our county, the Keokuk County Community Endowment Foundation has established the Disaster Recovery Fund (DRF) to support our most negatively impacted populations as they face the effects of COVID-19. The DRF provides an opportunity for the public to give with the reassurance their donations will be used to quickly move resources to where they are most needed and to adapt to evolving needs. The flexibility of the fund will ensure that the community will be able to respond to needs that are not being met by existing non-profit, local, state and federal programs.
