Northeast Iowa Funders Network

For sustainable communities

Northeast Iowa Funders Network

The Northeast Iowa Funders Network was established to connect community foundations and other philanthropic organizations as they collaborate to leverage regional and national funding opportunities in northeast Iowa.

Goals of the Network:

  • Learn more about the FFI initiative at the regional and community level
  • Understand how each funder's goals fit with the initiative
  • Collaborate to support regional policy-focused approaches to meeting initiative goals
  • Support grant-making which reflects and leverages the work of the initiative



The NEIFN is comprised of representatives from community foundations in the region, including Allamakee, Winneshiek, Howard, Chickasaw, Clayton, and Fayette as well as host foundation representatives in Waterloo and Dubuque.
The role of community foundation representatives is to become educated about projects and funding opportunities and then officially communicate the networkıs business back to the county boards as well as bring the county boardıs needs to the network.

Funding Partners:
Allamakee County Community Foundation
Clayton County Foundation for the Future
Chickasaw County Community Foundation
Howard County Community Foundation
Fayette County Community Foundation
Winneshiek County Community Foundation
Community Foundation of NE Iowa
