In September 2014 MEF became a partner in the Community Fund of Des Moines County. Two MEF Board members, Jeff Burgus and Kent Schmidgall,  sit on the governing Board of the Community Fund of Des Moines County.
By partnering with others in our area, individuals who desire to make larger, legacy gifts will be able to do so with the knowledge that their gift will benefit Mediapolis Community School District students forever. Such giving is especially rewarding, in more ways than one.
According to their website,
“Your gift creates lasting change in the community, and the Endow Iowa Tax Credit Program. This program offers a generous tax incentive to make it easier for you to give more for less: those who give to this are eligible to receive a 25% tax credit for their gifts.”
“The Community Foundation of Des Moines County was formed in 2006 as an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Great River Bend. The founding members of the organization had a vision to ensure that our communities’ charitable programs were supported now- and in the future. We work together with many individuals, families, businesses, and organizations to establish endowment funds that will provide grant awards for years to come.”
