The Greater Poweshiek Community Foundation was established to offer a simple, local and personalized way for individuals, families and businesses to support charitable community organizations and projects important to them.  There are many benefits to giving through GPCF including:

Tax Advantages
Gifts to the Foundation are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. See the Endow Iowa Tax Credit Program for more information.

In addition to cash contributions, the Foundation can accept a wide range of gifts including stocks, bonds, life insurance, gifts of grain or real estate, bequests, and IRAs. Visit our Ways To Give page to see the many flexible giving options available.

Donors may establish a fund in his or her own name or in honor of a loved one. A named fund will always be connected with any grant from that fund.

Personal Service
GPCF staff are available to discuss your giving priorities to help you make the greatest impact in your community.

GPCF is accredited through the National Council of Foundations and participates in an annual audit.  GPCF is governed by a board of up 20 community members from throughout the county to monitor financial statements, granting and community impact.

Investment Power
Gifts are invested wisely to ensure long-term growth.  Donors can receive fund statements to track growth, disbursements and expenses for accurate and easy record-keeping.

Donors enjoy knowing knowing their gifts are making a difference in their community.  By making gifts through the Community Foundation you can achieve business, family and estate planning objectives while assisting charitable agencies and causes locally.
