The CFJC Giving Catalog is a NEW donor giving tool on our website which facilitates crowd funding for current local nonprofit needs. This resource is designed to assist donors in finding nonprofit requests that resonate with their charitable giving. The tool allows nonprofit organizations to request funding for projects of up to $10,000 and our community to work together to fund those requests. Gifts of any amount are beneficial, as these gifts will pool together to make a larger impact for nonprofits in our community. Through the Giving Catalog, donors can give support to a list of specific funding requests with just a few clicks!

Nonprofit Organizations: How to Request Funding
501(c)3 nonprofit organizations who are located in or significantly serving Johnson County (Iowa) are eligible to request a project for funding through the Giving Catalog. Organizations can only list one request in the Giving Catalog per cycle, which will be a 6-month period (July-December and January-June). Requests should be project-based, a maximum of $10,000, and monies raised will be awarded to the organization when the request is fully funded, or at the conclusion of the 6-month cycle. Please note, requesting a project does not automatically add it to the listing, CFJC staff will review all requests prior to their addition to the Catalog. If you have any questions regarding the process or your request, please email Ellie@cfjc.org or call Ellie Moore at (319) 337-0483.
