Iowa Transfer of Wealth
Between the years of 2000-2049, Iowa can expect to see $531.7 billion transfer from one generation to the next through probate estates. In 2020 through 2029 alone, $98.25 billion is expected to pass to heirs.
Dubuque County Transfer of Wealth
During years 2020-2029, $2.3 billion is expected to transfer from one generation to the next through probate estates. Over the next 50 years, the estimated transfer is $12.7 billion.
|Transfer of Wealth||Dubuque County||State of Iowa|
|2020-2029||$ 2.3 billion||$ 98.25 billion|
|2000-2049||$ 12.7 billion||$ 531.7 billion|
If just 5% of the projected transfer could be invested between now and 2050 at the Community Foundation in an endowment, $632 million would be secured forever. Figuring a 4.25% grant payout, an estimated $27 million could be available annually to improve the quality of life in our community and secure our future.

In fall 2014, an anonymous donor grant to the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque helped to expand the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading to Dyersville. In January 2015, stakeholders in Dyersville convened to learn more and committed to becoming a Campaign community. This collaborative effort by partners across the community is working to ensure that more children succeed in school and are prepared for college, a career and active citizenship. The campaign focuses on the most important predictor of school success and high school graduation: grade-level reading by the end of third grade.
Partners throughout Dyersville collaborated to create a Community Solutions Action Plan (CSAP), which is a comprehensive, realistic and sustainable plan to improve the reading proficiency of Dyersville students by the end of third grade. The CSAP focuses on three areas: school readiness, school attendance and summer learning.
Through the anonymous donor grant, Dyersville has been able to hire a coordinator to help facilitate the Campaign.
The Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque has activated the Greater Dubuque Disaster Recovery Fund in partnership with the United Way of Dubuque Area Tri-States to provide a coordinated response to COVID-19. More than $550,000 has been raised so far to address pressing needs. Please consider a gift of any amount.X
