An Excellent Source of Funding for Organizations outside of Washington County

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 Washington County 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.

A copy of the report can also be found at the Iowa Gaming Association website
