Endow Iowa

Endow Iowa was created to enhance the quality of life for the citizens of this state through increased philanthropic activity by encouraging new investments to existing community foundations across Iowa. The Keokuk Area Community Foundation is a qualified community foundation that provides access to Endow Iowa Tax Credits. Endow Iowa allows taxpayers to receive a 25% Iowa tax credit, in addition to normal federal charitable income tax deductions, for gifts made to permanent endowment funds that benefit Iowa charitable causes. Gifts can be made to an existing permanent endowed fund or one that you establish. The gift must benefit one or more Iowa charitable causes.
