Your Generosity Was Record-Breaking in 2021

March 28, 2022

Kaye Englin, CFNEIA President & CEO

You never cease to amaze us. The Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa and our affiliates are in awe of the people like you who passionately believe in creating vibrant places where all people have the opportunity to thrive. We are humbled and grateful that individuals, families, and businesses across our region trust in the Community Foundation and choose us to carry out the good they want to see in their community.

Your generosity in 2021 was not just record-breaking - it was transformational. More than $6.8 million was granted to nonprofit organizations from charitable giving funds held at the Community Foundation in 2021. This response to community needs and opportunities transforms organizations and changes the lives of those they serve. Additionally, thanks to the generosity and vision of Iowans, a record of more than $14.7 million in gifts were made by donors to charitable giving funds supporting communities across our region.

The love you show for where you live is inspirational. It not only impacts communities and nonprofits through grantmaking, but your support also allows the Community Foundation to be a leader in addressing needs by developing meaningful partnerships that create bold community solutions.

Thank you for allowing us to grow our “here for good” impact. Your ongoing partnership is an invaluable gift that sustains us and inspires us to continue to do more to enrich our region. Your investment in communities through CFNEIA will resonate today, tomorrow, and forever.
