The Foundation for the Future of Delaware County (FFDC) was formed in 2005 as an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque. The founding members of the organization had a vision to ensure that our community's charitable programs were supported now and in the future. We work together with many individuals, families, businesses, and organizations to establish endowment funds that will provide grant awards for years to come.

|Transfer of Wealth||Delaware County||State of Iowa|
|2010-2019||$ 431 million||$ 74.43 billion|
|2000-2049||$ 2.9 billion||$ 531.7 billion|
If just five percent of the projected transfer could be invested between now and 2050 at the Community Foundation in an endowment, nearly $145 million would be secured forever. Figuring a five percent grant payout, an estimated $7.3 million could be available annually to improve the quality of life in our community and secure our future.
