The Impact Fund at the Community Foundation for Western Iowa (givewesterniowa.org) is currently the “Worthy Cause” nonprofit being recognized at Full Fledged Brewing Co. in Council Bluffs. The Community Foundation will receive a portion of taproom proceeds from Worthy Cause Amber Ale sales between the months of January through June to benefit the Impact Fund – a fund that supports projects and programming throughout Pottawattamie County.
The Impact Fund annually provides grants to nonprofits or governmental entities for creative or impactful projects that meet a clear, identifiable need in Pottawattamie County. Grants support projects in a variety of focus areas, such as: Arts & Culture, Community Betterment, Community Engagement, Education, Environment, Health, Human Services and Youth.
The Community Foundation celebrated its recognition as a “Worthy Cause” on February 23 with a small gathering, and will host two additional events at Full Fledged on May 9 and June 21 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. where community members are invited to attend.
