Iowa County Residents Provide Unprecedented Support for 2020 United Fund of Iowa County Campaign
March 30, 2021: The United Fund of Iowa County (UFIC) Board of Directors is pleased to share the results of the annual fundraising campaign for 2020. Iowa County residents exceeded the donation goal of $50,000, which resulted in record fundraising for UFIC. In addition, over 200 Iowa county residents were first-time donors to UFIC, also a milestone.
“We would like to extend gratitude to all donors on behalf of the organizations that received grants. The selflessness demonstrated by the residents of Iowa County is extraordinary, when considering all the hardship experienced over the past year,” said Donna Peterson, President of UFIC.
Iowa County nonprofits can apply for grants from UFIC through an application process. The UFIC Board of Directors reviews the applications and awards the grants based on adherence to the criteria set forth in the application. This criteria includes that recipients must have nonprofit status and use funds received for residents of Iowa County, among other stipulations. For the 2020 campaign, UFIC was able to award grants to the following organizations via a virtual event on March 15, 2021:
