Grants to Iowa government entities and nonprofit organizations for programs and projects that enhance the quality of life for residents in eligible areas. Grant funds may be used to support programs or capital projects. Focus areas include environment, health and human services, arts and culture, humanities, education, economic development, animals, recreation, and community activities. Eligible applicants must be located in and serving primarily clients in Jasper County.

Principles for Grant Making

  • The Foundation makes grants to support creative and innovative programs, current or emerging charitable opportunities, services not presently offered and capital projects that enhance the quality of life in the county.
  • Especially interesting are projects proposed by coalitions of service providers, and those likely to gain support from matching fund arrangements.
  • Projects funded should not represent significant duplication of initiatives already undertaken by other non-profit agencies.
  • Special attention will be given to projects that apply to broad segments of the population.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Grant amounts are dependent upon the allocation of funds available to the Community Foundation each fiscal year.

Term of Contract:

Grantees must complete the project within six months after receipt of the grant money. If the project is not completed within six months, they are required to file an extension request with the Jasper Community Foundation.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligibility Requirements:
- Be located in and serving primarily clients in Jasper County.
- Serve a charitable purpose by enhancing the quality of life in Jasper County in such areas as arts/culture/humanities; health/education/human services; environment/animals; public/society benefits and other community activities.
- To be considered for any of these funds, your organization must be a tax-exempt, non-profit entity classified by the IRS as 501(c)(3) or a 170(c)(1) governmental entity. If your organization is not a 501(c)(3), then you must have a fiscal sponsor who will be legally and financially responsible. Definitions are outlined below:
- Tax-Exempt Non-Profit Entity (IRS) - Organizations must be recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as tax-exempt, non-profit, public charities under section 501(c)(3) or as a “unit of government” under Section 170(c)(1) to receive grant funding. A 501(c)(3) is a section of the Federal Tax Codes, which establishes the criteria for tax-exempt charitable organizations. Section 170(c)(1) refers to agencies that conduct activities to benefit the public-at-large, like public schools, state universities, public libraries and volunteer fire departments.
- Fiscal Sponsor - An organization that is receiving money on behalf of the grant applicant and is responsible for disbursing the money for the project and maintaining appropriate documentation. This entity must by a 501(c)(3) or a 170(c)(1) unit of government in order to serve in this capacity. A fiscal sponsorship agreement must accompany the grant application if a fiscal sponsor is being used. This agreement is available within the JCF Grant Application.

Grants are not made in support of annual operating budgets.

Requests will generally be denied for crisis intervention, current budget support, elimination of deficits, reduction of debt or funding of completed projects.

Low priority will be given to programs or projects which have a narrow impact or sectarian purpose.
