Jones County Community Foundation Grant
Jones County Community Foundation grants to projects benefitting persons residing in Jones County, Iowa. Our priorities are to improve economic well-being or quality of life, improve educational opportunities, address community capital improvements, maintain and improve the health of Jones County residents, promote Jones County tourism and recreation, maintain Jones County heritage, and/or support conservation efforts.
Each entity is allowed to request funding only once per calendar year and cannot receive funding in consecutive years. Organizations need to have 501(c)3 status or partner with a fiscal sponsor in order to apply. Organizations who are awarded a grant will be required to attend an award reception in early December.
