Grant Opportunity

Community Grants
Community Grants are grants of $500 - $2,500 available to nonprofit and government entities doing innovative & meaningful work in line with the Pottawattamie County Community Foundation's mission to improve the lives of all county residents. 

2018 Community Grant applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 30th.

We are currently implementing an on-line grant application system. Please check back in early 2018 for more information or contact us at if you have further questions.

The Community Grant program is a highly competitive process due to the limited amount of funding each year. Successful applications respond to a demonstrated or emerging community need, support effective, proven or promising solutions, build upon and maximize other community resources and offer a clear plan for financial sustainability. The Foundation, except under unusual circumstances, does not make grants for deficit financing,  fund drives, or fundraising activities. Less consideration may be given to applications from tax supported organizations.
