More than $80,000 raised to date for the Quad Cities Disaster Recovery Fund
Today, the Quad Cities Community Foundation announced that more than $80,000 has been raised to date for the Quad Cities Disaster Recovery Fund at the Quad Cities Community Foundation. Gifts have come from hundreds of individuals and businesses in the Quad Cities, and all over the country.
The fund includes $10,000 lead gifts from the Quad Cities Community Foundation Board of Directors, the Quad Cities Osteopathic Foundation, Ascentra Credit Union Foundation, and Gray Television (the parent company of KWQC-TV6).
Donations are continuing to be accepted online at www.QCCommunityFoundation.org and at the Community Foundation’s office at 852 Middle Road, Suite 100, in Bettendorf.
In coordination with needs identified by the Long Term Recovery Committee of the Quad Cities COAD (Community Organizations Active in Disasters), the Community Foundation will make grants from the fund to organizations so that they have the resources they need to meet the long term needs of communities impacted on both sides of the river in the months ahead.
The Quad Cities Community Foundation is home to hundreds of endowment funds—started by individuals and organizations—that create a financial foundation for nonprofits and support the Quad Cities region today, and far into the future.
