The Mills County Community Foundation is pleased to announce that applications are now being
accepted from organizations providing charitable services in Mills County. As part of this spring grant
cycle, approximately $130,000 is available to support Mills County nonprofit organizations and
community projects. The deadline to apply for funds through the online application process is February

Made possible through the State of Iowa County Endowment Fund Program, this cycle of grants is
funded by a percentage of the state’s commercial gaming tax revenue, which is distributed annually to
participating community foundations associated with counties without a state-issued gaming license.
Only organizations providing services in Mills County are eligible to apply. They must be able to
demonstrate broad community/county support and be an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) public charity, a local
municipality, or a fiscally sponsored project.
The Mills County Community Foundation aims to improve the quality of life in Mills County by
supporting community needs in the areas of civic engagement, culture, health, education, and social
services. The objective of the grant program is to fund projects that will have a lasting impact in Mills
County. The Mills County Community Foundation will entertain requests for capital and program
support. Requests for general operating support will not be considered.
