There are few philanthropic organizations with as much impact on the area as the Appanoose County Community Fund. Each year, the foundation awards thousands of dollars in grants to nonprofits in Appanoose County based on a competitive grant application process.
The nonprofit was formed in 2005 by the Appanoose Economic Development Corporation to support projects aimed at improving Appanoose County and the quality of life of its citizens. Funding is provided through state lottery and gambling proceeds.
The South Central Iowa Community Foundation is overseen by the Community Fund. Since 2005, it has disbursed funds through a community grant process to worthy projects throughout Appanoose County.
