Your community … A community is many things, but first it is people. In the Greater Dubuque area, we are blessed with a wealth of individuals who have chosen to live their lives not merely for themselves, but also for those around them. Whether you are a donor, nonprofit board member, financial advisor or volunteer, we thank you for being a part of our community of givers. Your foundation … Our work is connecting people and their passions. We merge resources and dreams to build a better community. We are a result of people understanding that they can do good things with their charitable intentions and great things when they partner with others.
When you read the stories of our donors and grantees, you will see people, like you, who care about our community and want to make an impact. Turn the pages and experience the spirit of generosity, the richness of history preserved and the inspiration of music that will live forever.
Helping you fulfill your charitable dreams is at the heart of everything we do. You care deeply about your community and are making gifts, large and small, to the Foundation. Your gifts are pooled to create and build a permanent endowment over time. The endowment’s earnings are returned to support various organizations, issues and opportunities that shape our community’s future.
The Community Foundation is proud to be your partner in building a community – whether it is through connecting philanthropic donors with causes that matter, leading community initiatives or supporting the great work of local nonprofits.
This annual report is an official pause to celebrate six years of strategic and effective giving at the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque. From our humble start in 2002, we are proud to manage and direct $15.5 million in assets. This past year, our donors established 51 new funds, and made 848 gifts to existing funds. Our total grantmaking to nonprofits was $788, 856.
On behalf of every life touched by your gifts, we thank you for all that you do, and urge you to continue to make the Foundation your own. In friendship and appreciation,
Jim Theisen, Chair
Nancy Van Milligen, President/CEO

your passion. your foundation. Establishing an endowed fund for Two by Two, a family followed their passion for a more humane community and found healing. When Jeff and Lisa Ruppel became pregnant with their first child, they were thrilled about becoming parents. Among their visions for their young family was the thought of their child’s friendship with their retriever, Kona. Surely, they would be best friends. But their happy vision for boy and dog was shattered when their son, Sam, died a few days after birth due to complications during delivery. Looking back, Jeff and Lisa remember Kona being a rock of support during their grief. The dog seemed to understand their sadness. They started taking Kona everywhere, including long road trips to New Mexico and Arizona. At each stop they would search out and visit local dog parks. Through their travels, they gained knowledge about what makes a great community for people and their dogs. As they began looking for some way to memorialize Sam and their dreams for him, they learned about Two by Two Animal Campus. With character education at the heart of their mission, Two by Two teaches youths to become caring, respectful and responsible citizens. Developed by educator Kristin Woodward, an innovative curriculum engages young hearts and minds in humane education. A multi-functional campus is also planned to be located in Potosi, Wisconsin, and will apply classroom lessons to real-life learning environments. Through the interaction of companion animals and the environment, Two by Two is dedicated to improving the lives of both people and animals. Working with the Community Foundation, Jeff and Lisa made an endowed gift to Two by Two that will live forever. Lisa reflected, “From the day we lost Sam, we have felt a responsibility to parent his memory, which this gift has allowed us to do. In addition, we are providing hope that the society in which Jack, Teddy and Ben grow up will be kinder, more caring
and respectful of people, animals and the environment. Establishing the endowment in Sam’s name perfectly demonstrates the truth about receiving much more in return when you choose to give back. It has been a way to heal. Two by Two is an organization with a unique mission and one that is being fulfilled with such heart and integrity. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to support their purpose and progress.”
passion… Celebrating the many varied and vital passions of you, our donors, the Community Foundation strengthens 100 nonprofits in our community through agency endowments.
your dreams. your foundation. Chad and Laura Chandlee have bold dreams for their community. They have a passion and vision for every child to be kept safe, nurtured and educated. Long before they became donors through the Community Foundation, they were energetic volunteers committed to children’s causes. Laura is a former teacher and says, “Through teaching, I met a variety of children and families. I learned to appreciate parental and community support. What I would really love to do is create that support for every child.” Chad reflected, “I found out the Community Foundation is the source for community knowledge. When you have an idea for the community, it is a place where you can make connections, ask questions and find resources.”
dreams… In its role as knowledge broker, catalyst and convener, the Community Foundation works to make donors’ dreams for Greater Dubuque come true.
Chad and Laura created a Designated Fund to support the Every Child | Every Promise initiative in Dubuque. Chad serves on its board and, together with other leaders, is working to engage the community in delivering five promises to our youth. Chad’s mentors were his parents, both teachers. Laura credits her parents and grandfather for leading by example. Today, this young couple is busy parenting Alec, Ana, Leah and Maren. Chad said, “We were both incredibly lucky. We had parents and grandparents who taught us both to value our education and to give back. We want every child to have that same opportunity. The Community Foundation is a place for us to make that happen.”
your spirit. your foundation. Jim and Marita Theisen of Theisen’s Home Farm and Auto Stores are respected and beloved for their philanthropy. Whether it’s a gift to Presentation Lantern in downtown Dubuque, a priest’s mission in Kenya, a children’s home in Mexico, or scholarships for Loras College, the Theisens embody the spirit of generosity. Jim and Marita use an endowed Donor-Advised Fund at the Community Foundation for efficient and effective charity. Jim recently reflected, “It’s all about the spirit of giving. I first got involved by giving time as a volunteer in the Jaycees. It was just a group of people who got together and did a lot of good. I’ll never forget when we tore down an old building on 9th Street. We worked on weekends. We made time. We just did things. Early in our marriage we didn’t have a lot, but we still gave back. When my parents died, I realized the reach of their giving. People told me, ‘Your mom gave us money to adopt a child.’ I never knew they were so generous.” Emboldened by his parents’ example, gifts from Jim and Marita’s donor-advised endowment are currently supporting the start-up of several foundation funds, including a personal favorite, Step by Step. This Dubuque organization serves and empowers people with disabilities through such projects as cooperative housing for mobility-impaired individuals.
spirit… Through their gifts and example of bold generosity, Community Foundation donors Jim and Marita Theisen deliver the spirit of hope to individuals served by churches, schools, museums and helping organizations.
Jim said, “It just blossoms, this giving back. Once during a capital fund drive at our church, I made a donation, and I thought it was fair. But a friend challenged me, ‘Give ’till you’re proud, Theisen.’ I never forgot that. Now, I get a kick out of it. It always comes back. We have been blessed. Through our charity, we give other people hope.”
your legacy. your foundation. Legacy gifts to foundation endowments live forever. Also known as bequests, these gifts arrive at death to bless the lives of future generations. Norris Kuenzel grew up in a two-story house across from the City Park on Main Street in Garnavillo. The park is a place where children feel closer to the grass and sky and also touch the past. After playing on the swings or tiring from a game of tag, they can explore a restored log cabin. Members of the Garnavillo Historical Society open the little log house on summer weekends. Society volunteers challenge young minds to imagine what it was like to split wood to build a fire in order to heat water for a bath. Several years ago, the cabin was carefully taken apart and moved to the park as part of a collection of facilities owned by the society. These include a museum in a former brick church, a restored Masonic Lodge, a family residence and the Prairie Winds Garden.
legacyâ€Ś Norrisâ€™ legacy gift, an endowed gift to the Garnavillo Historical Society, is a gift made while living but given at death and provides assurance the history of his hometown will be preserved forever.
Visitors to the Garnavillo Historical Society Museum admire artifacts of the community from days gone by. Men often study the arrowheads, and little girls race to the hat room, where they can try on fashion accessories from an extensive collection. Norris, who is retired from The Garnavillo Savings Bank, has always loved history. Since his legacy gift was made known to the community, other donors have come forward. The endowment is growing and will supplement annual gifts and museum donations for the societyâ€™s future acquisitions.
your inspiration. your foundation. The power of music to inspire an entire community was behind Dubuque Symphony Orchestra leaders’ decision to begin a $2.75million endowment campaign on the 50th anniversary of the organization. Like many symphony patrons, Ken and Sue Miller made concerts a family affair. Ken, who currently serves as chair of the DSO Board reflected, “Our kids have grown up with a deep appreciation for their exposure to the symphony, and they continue to support the performing arts as young adults. I think their exposure to the performing arts had a positive impact on their attitudes and efforts they expended on their studies, and helped shape their social values.” The symphony is closing in on its goal of $2.75 million, thanks in part to its partnership with the Community Foundation. Gifts to the DSO endowment given through the Community Foundation became eligible for Endow Iowa, a 20-percent tax credit, which extends the power and reach of donors to touch causes they are inspired by. Miller went on, “Although we have supported the DSO through annual fund drives, we recognize much of what the symphony offers, and we enjoy the results of the financial investments made by others before us. It is our time to do more than support the current program. Now it is our turn to invest in the DSO to ensure its financial stability to impact the next generation.” DSO Conductor William Intriligator also holds a deep conviction in the power of music and for sharing the wondrous art form with the entire community. DSO Executive Director Jeff Goldsmith explained, “Our community is everybody. We are giving two free concerts this year as a way of saying thank you. We are continually reaching out to expand our audience.”
inspiration… Like the last musical note of a rousing concerto or a beloved march, the DSO endowment through the Community Foundation will resonate forever. The symphony endowment is a promise that beautiful music will always be an inspiration to you, our community.
your mission. your foundation. Whatever your favorite nonprofit mission, the McCarthy Center is a new resource for you to visit and explore. On May 15, 2008, the Leo A. & Joy K. McCarthy Center for Nonprofits officially opened with a Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting. The McCarthy Center serves all nonprofits in the Greater Dubuque area with a grant search database, a library of books and periodicals, a board-training curriculum, meeting facilities and design software. The center has received a steady flow of nonprofit grant seekers from who have found funding opportunities through the Foundation Directory Online Database. The database maintains the most comprehensive online catalog of U.S. grant makers and their funding opportunities.
Book titles are numerous and include Good to Great and the Social Sector, Inspired Philanthropy and The Giving Family. Materials may be checked out by local nonprofit staff and volunteers. Thanks in part to a grant by the Dubuque Racing Association, the McCarthy Center is able to offer board training through its Board Boot Camp Curriculum. This basic training for board members covers the context and structure of nonprofit organizations, explores the roles and responsibilities of board members and challenges participants to reflect on how their unique talents can best serve their organization. The Center also hosts graphic design support services for nonprofits.
The library portion of the center consists of reference materials, books and periodicals, with subjects ranging from fundraising to leadership to the grant-writing process.
mission… The McCarthy Center is available to nonprofit staff and volunteers Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m. The Center’s mission is to make our community stronger by working together.

your gift. your foundation. Through Endow Iowa, Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque donors captured about a half million dollars in Iowa tax credits last year. Endow Iowa allows Iowans making an endowed gift to an Iowa charity to receive a 20-percent state tax credit in addition to federal and state deductions when the gift is made through a certified community foundation. The following nonprofits and causes have either established an Agency Endowment Fund or have had a fund designated for them by a donor at the Community Foundation.

your generosity. your foundation. In return, members build awareness of issues and form bonds with women of all ages and incomes who share a common value. Anyone can join the Women’s Giving Circle. Meetings are held quarterly, and a newsletter is used to announce meetings and events.
Women’s Giving Circle Leader
In its first year of grant-making, the WGC awarded gifts to twelve agencies. Gifts of talent, supplies, equipment and used goods were distributed to the Dubuque Humane Society, Girl Scouts, Hillcrest Family Services, Hills & Dales, Luther Manor, Northeast Iowa School of Music, Opening Doors, Project HOPE, Presentation Lantern, Step by Step and the Tri-State Blind Society.
Membership Circle Leader
The Women’s Giving Circle is a fellowship of women who enjoy hands-on philanthropy and are creating a permanent legacy to meet community needs.
The Dubuque Rescue Mission received a $5,000 cash grant to support the Getting Ahead/Breaking Barriers initiative. This program encourages individuals living in poverty to investigate the circumstances of their own lives as well as the skills, attitudes and strategies needed to move to a more stable life. The grant will support 15–20 individuals as they move through this process.
As community leaders, these women donors make generous gifts to an endowment. They also share gifts of time and intellect to study community needs and make strategic grants.
generosity… The Women’s Giving Circle, which is led by Jeanne Lauritsen, Chris Schiesl and Peg Hudson, is comprised of more than 50 Dubuque women who have pooled their gifts in a mission to: Share the joy of giving, pass on the tradition of living with generosity and help members reach the most important needs in the community.
Grant-Making Circle Leader
your children. your foundation. Every Child | Every Promise (ECEP) and Shared Youth Visions are community outreach programs housed within the foundation’s office suite. ECEP is a nonprofit organization which works to engage the community in meeting five promises for all children:
• • • • •
Caring Adults Safe Places A Healthy Start Effective Education Opportunities to Serve
Shared Youth Visions (SYV) is a planning grant administered by the Community Foundation. By convening caring individuals from many community agencies, Shared Youth Visions’ goal is to improve the overall outcome among youths aged 14–24 who are currently in or who have aged out of foster care. Tara Nelson, Director of Grant-Funded Programs at the Community Foundation, coordinates Shared Youth Visions. She reflected, “One example of our new-found collaboration involved helping furnish the apartment of a young woman who was aging out of the foster-care system.”
Mae Hintgen, ECEP Executive Director, explains, “When children do not have these five promises, they are unable to develop the tools to become successful, productive citizens of their community.” ECEP connects people to resources and assists service providers in delivering the five promises to our youth. Every Child | Every Promise is both grant- and donor-funded. This past year the organization:
• Received recognition for Dubuque as one of the “100 Best Communities for Children”
• Developed and unveiled a communitywide growth chart • Supported kids expo and 8th grade career fair • Recruited and hired a full-time executive director
children… With the vitality and momentum of Every Child | Every Promise and Shared Youth Visions, the children of Dubuque experience improved quality of life and are actively supported on their way to becoming successful, engaged members of the community.
your youth. your foundation. YAPPERS (Youth Area Philanthropists) are among the best and brightest young people in the community. Highly motivated teenagers from Dubuque Senior, Wahlert and Hempstead comprise YAPPERS. They volunteer and act as philanthropists and grant makers. Now 30 members strong, these students meet regularly with foundation program directors, Kelly Behnke and Allison Schrempf, to engage in team-building and leadership activities, discuss local youth issues and plan events and service projects in their communities. As youth leaders, the YAPPERS direct their energy and passion toward three major projects: A local youth needs assessment that identifies the awareness of and facilitates action to the needs of youth in communities of the Greater Dubuque area.

The Empty Bowls Project raises awareness and funding for local youth poverty. YAPPERS work with area youth to create and sell bowls, with proceeds benefiting local youth poverty. The Project concludes with an annual Feed the Need dinner and silent auction with the same mission.
Project Concern Celebrate Books at Home Program
The annual grant-making cycle mirrors that of the Community Foundation. Students award grants to local agencies with programs that benefit and focus on youth.

Responding to requests from 25 different nonprofits, the Allamakee County Community Foundation (ACCF) awarded $57,116 to support community projects this past year. As the year unfolded with historic floods and a humanitarian crises for immigrants living in Postville, foundation donors responded with generous gifts to relieve the suffering. A Floods of 2008 Assistance Fund was established to help flood victims with ongoing, long-term recovery, cleanup and support. Teresa Wiemerslage, ACCF Board member reflected, “The idea for this fund comes from the lessons learned by Parkersburg residents. When people in Parkersburg looked back on things they wished they would have done before the tornado, an emergency fund at the local Community Foundation was high on the list. By having a local fund, the money will stay here to assist residents as they move forward with their rebuilding projects for their homes, farms and communities.” Sr. Mary McCauley, St. Bridget’s Catholic Church administrator in Postville, directs foundation gifts for children and families left destitute by the immigration raid. She reflected, “What your donors are doing to help with rent and utilities for these women and children is a blessing.”

your people. your foundation. Philanthropy is catching fire across the rural prairie as the Clayton County Foundation for the Future grew four agency funds this past year. Young adults with autism, toddlers learning to share, surgical patients and tourists interested in agricultural heritage are among the people touched by grants from the Clayton County Foundation for the Future Endowment this past year. In addition, mothers needing emergency formula and diapers for their infants, as well as expectant couples at the Guttenberg Municipal Hospital, received prenatal education through gifts from individual donors. The CCFF Endowment is supported by annual gifts from local residents as well as people from far away who wish to remember the place where they grew up.

your future. your foundation. Looking toward the future, Dyersville Area Community Foundation board members and donors are making plans to support Imagine 20/20 projects. Over the past several years, the Dyersville Area Community Foundation has served as the financial underwriter for Kid Project Community Childcare Center, successfully launching the agency which now serves more than 100 children and families from the area. Last year grants from its endowment supported projects in Petersburg, Luxemburg and Dyersville. Imagine 20/20 is a community visioning process involving citizens, businesses and organizations. In early 2009, the community conversation will result in a collection of ideas to grow the community. Ideas are just the beginning. Gifts to the DACF will serve to launch new projects like Kid Project in the days to come.
