Let’s say that you love Dubuque and the surrounding region and want it to continue prospering well into the future. But how do you help that happen? Knowing which nonprofit to fund or which cause to support can be overwhelming as there are so many options, and today’s needs may not be as relevant in the future.
Enter the Forever Fund at the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque. This fund is a vehicle to allow the Foundation to respond to both challenges and opportunities as they arise and is designed to be an investment resource for the region’s future.
“The Community Foundation has community knowledge, relationships, data, and knows the issues,” says Foundation president and CEO Nancy Van Milligen. “The Forever Fund allows the board to use this information to make thoughtful decisions where they can have the greatest impact.”
