The Tama County Community Foundation was formed in 2005 as an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa located in Waterloo, Iowa. The TCCF works together with many individuals, families, businesses, and organizations to establish endowment funds that provide grant awards for years to come. In addition, gifts to permanent endowment funds with the TCCF qualify to receive Endow Iowa State Tax Credits, a program giving donors an Iowa tax credit of 25 percent of the amount of their donation. $6 million dollars in Endow Iowa tax credits are available annually.
The Tama County Community Foundation is governed by active community-minded volunteers, representing every community of Tama County. For more information about the TCCF, visit www.tamaccf.org or contact Mary Fasse-Shaw, TCCF Development Associate, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (641) 751-5251.
