Field of Interest Funds 

The Quad Cities Community Foundation recognizes that many different things contribute to healthy, vibrant, and livable communities. Through our endowed Field of Interest Funds, we work to connect the generosity of our many donors to the nonprofits that make our Quad Cities region one where people and place thrive.

Our volunteer board of directors and committees pool available resources from many donor gifts and apply grants in all these areas to address priority needs and community opportunities every year.

Gifts, bequests and estate provisions are welcomed to any of the below endowed Field of Interest Funds. Or, donors may choose to name an endowed Field of Interest Fund of their own and select a broad category of need that speaks to their passion.
