2021 Rebuild Marshalltown Fund Grant Guidelines Released

The Community Foundation of Marshall County Rebuild Marshalltown Fund is pleased to announce that the 2021 guidelines and funding cycles for the Rebuild Marshalltown Fund are in the link above. The purpose of this fund is to support long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts in Marshalltown due to the July 2018 tornado.

Distinct from the Community Foundation’s annual community grant application, the Rebuild Marshalltown Fund will utilize a Letter of Intent process to identify projects for the fund to support. This opportunity is open to tax-exempt, non-profit entities classified by the IRS as 501(C)(3) organizations, public schools, or government entities. Funds must be used for mid-to-long term recovery and rebuilding efforts in the tornado affected area. The minimum request amount is $20,000. Applicants are required to demonstrate investment in the projects by providing a cash match that is a minimum of 50% of the total grant requested from the Rebuild Marshalltown Fund.
