Adams Community Foundation

ACF invests in projects that will make a difference in the lives of current and future Adams County residents by offering grants to local non-profits and governmental entities for community projects.  Our grant application deadlines are the first Friday in May and the first Friday in December.  To date, the Foundation has contributed almost 1.5 million dollars to worthy projects in Adams County since 1986.

Your charitable contributions will make a difference, are tax deductible and may be eligible for an additional Endow Iowa tax credit.  For long-term gifts, see our Planned Giving brochure to assist you in leaving a legacy gift to your community.  Both annual gifts and legacy gifts through your estate planning are welcome and encouraged.

Our 9-member volunteer board appreciates your commitment to the Adams Community Foundation in helping to support our local non-profits as they thrive and grow.  Please join us in making our community the best it can be!
