Iowa Foundations

Summary Of DataBook & Software Features:

The Iowa Foundation DataBook and Software is a directory and software on CD of every Iowa foundation, with comprehensive profiles of the largest grantmaking foundations and a categorical listing of every one of the grants they awarded to mostly Iowa nonprofit organizations for the most recent year on record.
Combined asset amount of foundations profiled is over $2.9 billion and represents over 99% of all Iowa foundation assets; total of grants profiled is over $245 million.
Three indexes show every Iowa foundation–view all 1,276 Iowa foundations alphabetically by Foundation name, by City name, or by foundation Asset amount.
This edition of the Iowa Foundation DataBook is electronic. The CD or DVD contains a .pdf file which is a replica of the previously printed books, and the DataBook software.
