GRANTEE STORY

Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque

Empowering communities, igniting generosity

Since 2003, the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque’s mission has been to empower communities and ignite generosity. Working across seven rural counties in eastern Iowa, the foundation convenes and collaborates with community members to understand regional challenges and serves as a catalyst for responses that create better outcomes for all people.

Working closely with community members, the foundation leverages matching grants to invest and scale community programs. Some of its current initiatives include an effort to support thriving immigrant communities, a partnership to strengthen local journalism, and a program that promotes access to clean local energy. Through its collective impact model, the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque envisions a vibrant and inclusive Dubuque region where everyone can thrive.
