We use our own endowment to make grants to local nonprofits. In 2020, we granted $30,000 to help organizations. Recent grants include playground equipment for the City of Worthington, safety gear for fire departments, and educational materials for area schools.
“We are here to help our caring citizens meet the area’s needs, says Shelia Tegeler, DACF Chair. “Our growing endowment for annual grants provides assurance that our communities will be blessed for years to come.”
The DACF Endowment has also been growing thanks to memorial donations. Gifts to the DACF Endowment bless the entire area forever. Foundation Secretary Karla Thompson keeps a supply of memorial envelopes at the Chamber office. Gifts to endowments are eligible for Endow Iowa, a 25% state tax credit.
