Our vision is to ensure Polk City’s charitable programs are supported now and in the future.
We work together with individuals, families, businesses, and organizations to establish charitable funds that will provide community impact for years to come.
PCCF was formed in 2008 as an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines. We are governed by a local board of directors who are actively philanthropic individuals who care about our community.
Polk City Community Foundation has identified three platforms as the target goals:
1. Fire & Police
2. Children in the Community
3. Arts & Beautification
What is a Community Foundation?
The Polk City Community Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life throughout Polk City by investing in area nonprofits through our grant programs and by providing individuals, families and area businesses who love our community with a way to give back.
Our approaches to giving are personal, simple and flexible. By partnering with us you focus on the joy of supporting the causes you care about in ways that fit your needs, while we ensure the administrative details of giving are taken care of at the highest standard. We offer a variety of charitable giving fund options to match your needs and provide access to unique tax-wise giving opportunities like Endow Iowa, a 25% state tax credit. We are also here to ensure that your charitable legacy continues for generations to come so that the causes and community you care about today will benefit from your generosity after your lifetime. Whether working with us directly or through your trusted professional advisor, we are here to meet your giving goals and make Polk City better together.
