Working in Partnership

Funding our community’s needs and future development doesn’t happen because of one organization. It takes many interested parties working together with the shared goal of giving back. Learn more about the groups that are dedicated to making our region stronger.

Local Resource for Personal Philanthropy

In 2007, a Transfer of Wealth Study funded by Iowa West Foundation explored
the availability of charitable donations in the Pottawattamie County area. The study found that a community foundation, which allows donations to be fully deductible and eligible for tax credits, would provide a new way for area residents to keep wealth here and meet future needs in the community. As a result, the Pottawattamie County Community Foundation (PCCF) was formed.


The Pottawattamie County Community Foundation is a tax-exempt public charity, 501(c)(3), that serves thousands of people who share a common interest in improving the quality of life in Pottawattamie County, Iowa.

Through the Pottawattamie County Community Foundation individuals, families, businesses, communities and organizations can create permanent charitable funds that helps their region meet the challenges of changing times.

OUR VISION is a community where families choose to
live, and businesses choose to locate, because of its
quality of life and standard of living.
