Grant Description

Grants to Iowa nonprofit organizations and municipal entities to benefit the local community in eligible locations. Funding is intended for programmatic, capital, and general operating support. Eligible proposals address the needs of the community. The goal of the program is to fund projects that will have a permanent impact on Crawford County.

The Crawford County Community Foundation aims to improve the quality of life in Crawford County by supporting community needs in the areas of civic engagement, culture, health, education, and social services. 

The Audubon County Community Foundation will entertain requests for capital and program support. General operating support will only be considered for one-time, non-recurring circumstances that improve the capacity of the organization to fulfill its mission.

  • Capital Support (Items of Permanence) – Grants for capital support enable the purchase of equipment, completion of brick-and-mortar building projects, or physical renovations to a space.
  • Program Support – Grants for program support fund a specific, connected set of activities with a beginning and an end, explicit objectives, and a predetermined cost.
  • Operating Support – Grants for operating support overall activities at an organization, including operating expenses and overhead. This type of grant supports the organization's overall mission.
