River Bluff Community Foundation:
An affiliate of the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque, the River Bluff Community Foundation was formed in 2005. The founding members of the organization had a vision to ensure that our communities' 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.
Your gift to the River Bluff Community Foundation will help preserve and enhance facilities and programs that provide family-friendly fun, education, and many other opportunities for our community.

Transfer of Wealth
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.
Clinton County Transfer of Wealth
During years 2020-2029, $1.7 billion is expected to transfer from one generation to the next through probate estates. Over the next 50 years, the estimated transfer is $9.3 billion.
|Transfer of Wealth||Clinton County||State of Iowa|
|2020-2029||$ 1.7 billion||$ 98.25 billion|
|2000-2049||$ 9.3 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, $463 million would be secured forever. Figuring a 4.25% grant payout, an estimated $19 million could be available annually to improve the quality of life in our community and secure our future.
