(Sioux City, IA, January 11, 2018) The Ida County Community Betterment Foundation (ICCBF), an affiliate of the Siouxland Community Foundation, is accepting grant applications from 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations and units of local government. Application materials for the grant process are available on the web at https://siouxlandcommunityfoundation.org/ida-county-community-betterment-foundation-iccbf/. The deadline for submitting an application is March 1.
A webinar grant workshop will be offered on February 8th at 5:30 pm. This will provide an opportunity for applicants to review the online grant application process and discuss revised requirements. Participants can RSVP at the community foundation by calling 712-293-3303.
Since the first grants were awarded in 2006, the ICCBF has awarded over $1M to nonprofit organizations to help support present and emerging needs within Ida County in the areas of arts & culture, civic affairs, education, environment, health, and human services. A detailed list of grants awarded the past several years is available on the website.
The ICCBF Advisory Board is well aware that service clubs and organizations have an important role in Ida County. Even though the Foundation can not make grants directly to service clubs or other non-501(c)(3) organizations, those organizations are encouraged to collaborate with a qualified nonprofit agency on projects or seek a fiscal sponsor.
The ICCBF is governed by a local ten-member advisory board composed of representatives from each of the communities in Ida County. Technical assistance and staff support is provided by the Siouxland Community Foundation which currently works with several affiliate Foundations.
Questions about the grant program or application process may be directed to Teresa Hunt, ICCBF Advisory Board Chair, at (712) 368-4939 or Rebecca Krohn, ICCBF Administrator, at (712) 293-3303.
