Posted on 15 April 2016 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The Boone County Community Endowment Board has awarded $112,418 to 27 county organizations.  These grants funds are anticipated to leverage another $1,061,880 in total project spending.

The 27 grant recipients were announced at a special celebration held at the McGraw Senior Citizen Center in Ogden on April 14.  “We received 48grant applications requesting $243,232.  We only wish that we had more resources at the Endowment because we know there are many needs and worthy projects throughout the county,” said Mary Bilden, Chair of the Community Endowment Board.

This was the eleventh time that the Boone County Community Endowment has engaged in grant making.  The first awards were made in 2006 where 10 grants were awarded totaling $42,883.  In 2015, $89,800 was granted to 23 recipients.  To date, $871,119 has been distributed in Boone County from the BCCEF utilizing our granting process. The Endowment annually receives funds from the County Endowment Fund legislation.

The Boone County Community Endowment Fund Board was organized by representatives from throughout Boone County.  “Our mission involves helping the communities and non-profit organizations of the county,” said Bilden.  “We want to partner with communities and non-profit organizations to help them with programs and projects that might otherwise not be available to the individuals, families and visitors to our county.”

As an affiliate Endowment, the Boone County Community Endowment can assist donors who wish to make outright and testamentary gifts of support to our Endowment or other charitable organizations in the county.  “It is possible for local charitable organizations to establish their own funds and benefit from special tax credits and the professional expertise and investment management we help provide,” said Bilden.  There are currently 17 funds established.
