Benefits to Donors
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.
In addition to cash contributions, GPCF can accept a wide range of gifts including stocks, bonds, life insurance, gifts of grain or real estate, bequests, and IRAs.
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.
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. It is governed by a diverse board of 20 community members to monitor financial statements, granting and community impact.
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.
By making gifts through the Community Foundation you can achieve business, family and estate planning objectives while assisting charitable agencies and causes within your community.
