who we are

TS Community Foundation, founded in 1999, is a 501(c)(3) organization designed to help giving people achieve more with their donations. The Foundation is committed to developing long-term prosperity in the local communities, and a charitable process which gives donors more financial flexibility.

In 2019 TS Community Foundation became an affiliate of Pottawattamie County Community Foundation, and as partners will continue efforts to spur growth and prosperity in southwest Iowa. Our partnership with Pottawattamie County Community Foundation provides tax incentives to donors such as the Endow Iowa Tax Credit.

We are a community of giving people.

TS Community Foundation hopes to empower giving people to transform their communities for good. Sustainable growth, positive impact, and generational change are important in every community.

"Our number one desire is to be a catalyst for positive change and growth in our communities for generations to come." - Mick Guttau, TS Community Foundation Founding Member.

The Southwest Iowa Impact Fund is the catalyst for lasting, positive change in rural Iowa. This fund is available for nonprofit organizations in Pottawattamie, Cass, and Adams counties focused on economic development, rural development, community development, job retention and growth, workforce development, and program assistance for vulnerable children and families including services that assist those over 51% low to moderate income areas.

Helping our community, one child and one family at a time, is our ultimate goal. No more than ever grants to impactful organizations are critical to southwest Iowa.
