There are several options for giving to the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation. You can establish a new fund, give to an existing fund, or make a general gift to support the community. By partnering with us, you can make a meaningful impact on your community.

Give to the Community Endowment Fund
The Community Endowment Fund is an unrestricted fund supporting competitive grant programs at the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation. Donors who make gifts to the Community Endowment Fund recognize that the needs in our community will change over time. This endowed fund allows the Community Foundation to provide funding for nonprofits meeting those needs.

Give to an Existing Fund

Give to the Creating Safe Equitable and Thriving (SET) Communities Fund
Give to the SET Fund to provide grants to partners working to reduce youth violence in Cedar Rapids. More Information about the SET Fund can be found here.

Give to the Disaster Recovery Fund
Give to the Disaster Recovery Fund to support communities in Linn County during disasters to provide resources where they are needed most. Currently, the fund is supporting recovery efforts from the pandemic and derecho.

Establish a New Fund
We can establish a new fund in your name, the name of your family or business, or in honor of any person or organization you choose. Every fund is customized to reflect your charitable interests and giving goals.

The Community Foundation does not solicit charitable contributions from donors who are residents of Florida, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
