What We Do

Community Foundation for Western Iowa is a partnership of rural and urban citizens dedicated to improving the lives of all residents by supporting and stimulating donor-driven philanthropy.

We solidly connect folks in our community who are committed to making a difference and creating durable positive impact with the most pressing issues and compelling projects.

The Community Foundation for Western Iowa, formerly the Pottawattamie County Community Foundation, serves thousands of people who share a common interest - to improve the quality of life in Pottawattamie County and southwest Iowa. Individuals, families, businesses, and organizations create lasting impact through their permanent charitable funds. As investors in our community, donors who utilize the Community Foundation for Western Iowa to effectively connect to the causes they are passionate about are confident and secure in knowing their funds are working hard to create the most impact.

Through the Community Foundation for Western Iowa, individuals, families, businesses and organizations can create permanent charitable funds that help their communities meet the challenges of changing times. The foundation invests and administers these charitable funds.

Like all community foundations across the United States, the Community Foundation for Western Iowa is overseen by a volunteer board of leading citizens and run by professionals with expertise in identifying the needs of their community.
