The Community Foundation of Jackson County is committed to supporting the needs of the communities throughout Jackson County. In order to do so, we rely on local nonprofit organizations and service groups to inform our board of the ongoing needs in their communities through our grant program.
Important Update: The Community Foundation of Jackson County has decided to consolidate our two grant cycles into one fall cycle. Beginning in the fall of 2020, we will award all our state of Iowa gaming grant dollars in November of each year. Jackson County nonprofits should begin planning all 2021 requests for the fall 2020 grant cycle. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Mary Jo Gothard, executive director.
