Community Fund of Greater Muscatine awards $51K to nonprofits
Last night the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine held an award ceremony for the 20 organizations across the county that are to receive a total of $51,786.
“No matter how you define community, each organization represented here today is creating our community, and a definition of home,” Shelly Maharry, associate director of the Foundation, said. “Thank you for your hard work and determination to make your organization and projects a success, an important addition to our community, and improve the quality of life for those who reside in Muscatine County.”
The Iowa Department of Economic Development distributes these funds to re-granting programs like the Foundation’s Muscatine County Endowment Re-granting Program. These funds are a small portion of gaming revenue generated in Iowa and redistributed across the state.
