While mcanstockphoto9949046ost people know the Buena Vista County Community Foundation because of our grant making role within the community we do have another very important mission.  Our mission also involves the growth of community through charitable giving and the funding of private endowments.

Are you looking to leave a legacy for your favorite group, charity, community, or organization?  Ask us how we can help make that dream a reality through the creation of a private endowment.  Our partnership with the Greater Des Moines Foundation allows us to bring resources and expertise to the table that can help ensure that your wishes are granted while providing you with the best tax and financial benefits today.

Private endowments set up under the Buena Vista County Community Foundation remain separate from the Foundations grant making side completely.  We have the ability to provide a good rate of return for invested funds due to our partnership with the Greater Des Moines Foundation due to their ability to pool invested funds and their financial advisors who help to ensure the best rate of return possible on funds invested.

Please contact the Foundation for more information or to set up a meeting where we can discuss the potential benefits.
