NONPROFITS MAY APPLY FOR A GRANT
The Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine is honored to carry on the legacy of the Muscatine Health Support Foundation through management and granting of the funds set forth by the original organization’s purpose and mission.
“…to encourage, assist, establish, maintain, and develop in and for the City of Muscatine, Iowa, and the surrounding area projects of such character as will improve the community health and aid the growth and development of the medical care system for the community.”
After 33 years and $5 million in grants, the Muscatine Health Support Foundation chose the Community Foundation to manage its legacy before dissolving their private foundation in December 2017. To maintain continuity in the transition, its former board of directors remains active. They are joined on the new Advisory Committee by representatives of the Community Foundation board of directors and a GMCCI representative.
A unique partnership among the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine, Trinity Muscatine/Unity HealthCare, Iowa Physicians Clinic Medical Foundation and GMCCI allows for up to $200,000 to be available for grants annually. This particular fund is looking to give grants for the benefit of our community’s health care system through capital improvements, pilot programs, one-time need and medical equipment. Start-up projects will be considered if there are plans for future funding to encourage self-sustainability.
