Here is a fact that few people are aware of. This past year; more than $10.4 million of gaming tax revenue was distributed by the Iowa Department of Revenue to 85 non-casino county community foundations and/or affiliate organizations - each receiving approximately $123,000. 75% of that money must be provided in grants and 25% kept in a permanent endowment.
This is an excellent source of funding for those organizations in counties that do not have a casino. We recommend that groups from outside
that are looking for funds also try their community foundation in their respective counties. Click Here for a copy of the report that gives you contact information for each community foundation. Washington County
