As one of the region’s largest private foundations, the Iowa West Foundation impacts the lives of thousands of area citizens and plays an important leadership role in the community.
I am honored to have been chosen to serve as president and CEO of this organization. At the outset of my first year, I spent a great deal of time meeting and visiting with as many people as possible to learn more about the organizations and initiatives in our region, as well as the perceptions of the Foundation. Thank you for your generous welcome and your thoughtful insights.
In 2012, my exciting inaugural year, the Iowa West Foundation announced grants of nearly $16 million for 165 projects and programs. I invite you to read the to learn more about the wide range of grants that were awarded.
