2020 Grant Impacts

The work of the Winneshiek County Community Foundation (WCCF) could not happen without our partnerships. The WCCF Governing Committee thanks our local nonprofit organizations, donors, fundholders, and other community stakeholders who help us strengthen Winneshiek County and make it a more vibrant place for everyone to live, work, and play!

While we aren't able to gather together in person to celebrate our 2020 grant awards, it is still important to us to recognize and share the impacts being made from the $133,897 in discretionary grant funding awarded to 32 nonprofit projects this year.

Watch the video below to hear from Marcia McKelvey, Chair of the WCCF, and to learn more about this year's grant-funded projects.
