What are Community Endowment Funds?

The Community Foundation of Johnson County hosts Community Endowment Funds that support important causes in our local towns and cities. As host, we provide investment management, fund accounting, policy governance, and grantmaking oversight for each endowment fund.

Our Community Endowment Funds are led by advisory committees of local leaders. These advisors make grant recommendations and direct fundraising efforts to support their communities. Each Community Endowment Fund operates under the tax-exempt status of the Community Foundation of Johnson County while working to best serve local needs.

Today, we are honored to serve as the host for Community Endowment Funds for Coralville, Iowa City, Lone Tree, North Liberty, Swisher, Tiffin, and University Heights.

Gifts made to Community Endowment Funds may be eligible for the 25% Endow Iowa Tax Credit.
