The Moline Foundation is located in Moline, Illinois.

Nestled on the banks of the Mississippi River, Arts & Culture, Education, Environment, Community Development and Human Resources are alive and well.

All communities share the same diverse weaknesses in some form or fashion.  Lack of education, food, clothing, affordable cultural experiences, housing, environmental protection present a challenge for The Moline Foundation to which we support our local nonprofits by funding them for specific needs that help our communities thrive.

The Moline Foundation was established in 1953 to help strengthen Moline’s nonprofit community and encourage local giving to help contend with all issues the communities in the seven-county region served by The Moline Foundation. We hope that you will join us in our efforts.

The Moline Foundation goal is to increase endowed funds to support nonprofits that provide essential services to Illinois residents of Rock Island, Mercer, Henry, Warren and McDonough Counties and Iowa residents of Scott County.


We hope you will consider joining us in our efforts to improve all aspects of life in our communities. Your donation or creation of an endowed fund will support the current and future needs for our surrounding society.  It's a lifetime commitment we are proud to support.
