We bring people together to amplify good in our community.


Nonprofit CEOs connect, collaborate, and learn from each other at the Quad Cities Community Foundation. At each session, exclusively for nonprofit CEOs and executive directors, CEOLink participants focus on a self-selected topic facing their organizations, providing opportunities for best practice sharing and collaborative partnerships among CEOs. Past discussions have included working with a board of directors, strategic planning, volunteer management, and grant seeking. 

Funders Forum

We partner with philanthropic leaders in the Quad Cities to facilitate discussions that allow other grantmaking organizations to ask questions, share best practices, and explore cooperative efforts. Membership is comprised of key representatives from all philanthropic sectors. Meetings happen over lunch and are structured around scheduled discussion topics led by one of the members of the group, always leaving time for open discussion and networking.

Quad Cities Planned Giving Council

The Quad Cities Planned Giving Council works to maximize philanthropy throughout the greater Quad Cities area for the public good by providing education, programming and professional collaboration that advances the knowledge and value of gift planning and improves the lives of others through the philanthropic gifts of our donors and clients.

We also proudly offer space—free of charge—for nonprofits in our region.

Our community room at the Quad Cities Community Foundation offices provides a large space for your board meeting or community presentation. To learn more, or to book use of our room for your nonprofit, please contact Melanie Jones at (563) 326-2840.
