The John J. Quail Foundation Fund supports charitable organizations in the Quad Cities area. John was a local stock broker who believed strongly in giving back to his community and making it a better place to live, work, and raise a family.

The John J. Quail Foundation Fund supports projects and programs that promote and benefit arts and culture. Grant applications that meet a nonprofit's small emergency needs will be given preference. In addition, applications in support of capital campaigns will also be considered.

Application Process

Starting in 2019, applications will be accepted through a Combined Field of Interest Fund grant opportunity. Please click here for more information.
