What The Moline Foundation does....
Community foundations are tax-exempt charitable organizations created by a community to benefit the people who live there.
As public charities, community foundations can raise money from individuals, businesses, groups of people, or other foundations. Community foundations, like The Moline Foundation, make it easy for generous people to support causes they care about. Strong community foundations are led and staffed by people who know their communities, its needs and its leaders, and who can collaborate to solve the local challenges.
The Moline Foundation is a community catalyst that:
Raises awareness of the vital work of local nonprofits.
Uses its organizational strength to raise more money, and
finds common ground to build lasting partnerships to effectively solve challenges in the Quad Cities region of Iowa and Illinois.
