Giving in Monroe County

The Monroe County Iowa Community Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life throughout Monroe County by investing in area nonprofits through our grant programs and by providing individuals, families and area businesses who love our communities with a way to give back.

 

Our approaches to giving are personal, simple and flexible.

We offer a variety of charitable giving fund options to match your needs and provide access to unique tax-wise giving opportunities like Endow Iowa, a 25% state tax credit. We are also here to ensure that your charitable legacy continues for generations to come so that the causes and communities you care about today will benefit from your generosity after your lifetime. Whether working with us directly or through your trusted professional advisor, we are here to meet your giving goals and make Monroe County better together.
