Metro Funders is a voluntary alliance of Black Hawk County public and private grantmakers originally formed in 1989. Its main purpose is to collect information, evaluate operations, provide funding coordination, and prioritize information for funding and develop financial resources for service providers (grantseekers). Metro Funders meets approximately every other month to discuss funding needs and requests in the Cedar Valley.


Metro Funders serves as an essential provider of valuable information, training and collaborative opportunities for both funders and grantseekers and encourages an effective nonprofit network in the Black Hawk County area. Metro Funders collects, manages and disseminates information and tools that simplify the grant seeking process while promoting responsible, efficient and effective delivery of services and community development in and to the Metro area.
