A tremendous success: Video Celebrates 15 years of the Qualified Community County Foundation Program!




During this holiday season, when everyone should take pause and be more thankful, the Iowa Gaming Association celebrates a 15-year milestone with the Iowa Council of Foundations for their joint role in promoting and supporting the innovative Qualified Community County Foundation Program! The breadth of this program has seen significant success in providing millions of grant dollars to thousands of worthy non-profit organizations to improve their purpose plus benefit the well-being of citizens throughout Iowa.

The video link above is a great summary of all the worthy projects and powerful impact from each of Iowa’s 84 counties without casinos receiving gaming tax revenue each year. Since 2004, the County Endowment program has:
  • Made over 27,000 grants
  • Granted more than $100 million in these 84 participating qualified community county foundations
  • Facilitated participating community foundations to grow their assets to over $225 million, which are invested in endowment funds to support Iowa’s future
Wondering how the 15 counties with casinos benefit? Read here about the 15 nonprofit license holders that receive and reinvest millions of dollars each year from their respective casinos into numerous charitable and civic needs.
