We stay on the pulse of opportunities and challenges people and organizations face and make grants that infuse dollars into nonprofits addressing those needs.

QUAD CITIES COMMUNITY IMPACT FUND

The Quad Cities Community Impact Fund is a permanently endowed fund supported by thousands of generous donors with unrestricted gifts totaling nearly $13 million. This fund allows the Quad Cities Community Foundation flexibility to respond to the most pressing needs and promising opportunities in the community, as they arise and vary from year to year. The Quad Cities Community Impact Fund makes much of our grantmaking possible, from Transformation Grants to Q2030 Grants to Capacity Building Grants and more. Since our founding, more than $73 million has been awarded to nonprofits in the Quad Cities region.

Quad Cities Disaster Recovery Fund

The Quad Cities Disaster Recovery Fund provides support to organizations meeting the needs of vulnerable people and communities in Scott and Rock Island Counties, and ensures we have the resources to target our community's long-term recovery efforts after a disaster. Every dollar donated will be used for needs here in the Quad Cities area.
