GCRCF Affiliates

Community foundations create opportunities for towns and regions to direct philanthropic resources locally. They provide a vehicle for donors to invest their contributions close to home, and for communities to build their quality of life. The Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation (GCRCF) supports the development of community foundations in eastern and southern Iowa through its work with geographic affiliates. Each affiliate is locally governed and serves local needs, with GCRCF providing fiduciary services, guidance and technical assistance. Geographic affiliates have access to the services and benefits of a fully-accredited community foundation that is held to rigorous National Standards, such as participation in the state’s County Endowment and Endow Iowa Tax Credit Program.
