Who We Are

The main purposes of the Community Foundation of Des Moines County are to build community endowments, be a resource for a broad range of community needs (arts and culture, education, health and human services, historic preservation, etc.) and to assist donors by offering a variety of giving options.

The Community Foundation of Des Moines County was formed in 2006 as an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Great River Bend. The founding members of the organization had a vision to ensure that our communities' charitable programs were supported now and in the future. We work together with many individuals, families, businesses, and organizations to establish endowment funds that will provide grant awards for years to come.  Today, the Foundation is an affilate of the Keokuk Area Community Foundation and receives staff support from the Greater Burlington Partnership.
