The original Waterloo Civic Foundation was created in 1956 and later expanded and converted into an area foundation serving a multi-county area of Northeast Iowa. Today, the Waterloo Community Foundation provides a conduit for past, present, and future residents of Waterloo to invest in the community and surrounding area.
To advance this mission, the foundation is seeking grant proposals from qualified organizations for projects or programs designed to improve and benefit the citizens and community of Waterloo (and, in limited situations, the surrounding area) in the areas of health and human services, arts and culture, education, or economic development.
A total of five grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded. Matching funds are not required, but partnerships are encouraged.
An informational meeting regarding the opportunity is scheduled for Wednesday, September 18, at 1:30 p.m. at the Van G. Miller Adult Learning Center, 120 Jefferson Street, in Waterloo.
See the Waterloo Community Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
