Memorial Endowment Fund

Print PDF

The Louisa County Memorial Endowment Fund gives families and friends a means of honoring and remembering their loved one with a gift that benefits their community.   Earnings from the permanent memorial endowment fund are used to benefit parks, schools, and other non-profit organizations in Louisa County.

The Louisa County Memorial Fund is a great way to remember a family member and a great way to give back to the community where a person grew up, lived worked or played.   It’s a gift that keeps on giving because the memorial fund is a permanent endowment where only the earnings are distributed. It is a gift that is For Good, Forever.

Non-profit organizations, schools and agencies are able to apply to the Board of the Community Foundation of Louisa County for grants from the endowment fund.  Gifts to the memorial endowment fund may be eligible for a 25% Iowa income tax credit.

Gifts can be made in memory of a friend or relative.  Checks should be made to the Louisa County Memorial Fund and can be sent to Community Foundation of Louisa County, PO Box 34, Morning Sun, Iowa.  The address of the deceased’s family should be included so that the Community Foundation can send an acknowledgement of the gift to the family.

Your Gift Makes a Difference

Feeding the hungry, providing shelter for the abused, giving children a better start in life -- when you give to the Community Foundation’s endowment, your gift will help solve community problems for generations to come.

As our endowment fund grows through investments and wise management, more funds are available each year for services and non-profit organizations—the people who work most closely with those in need.

You can donate to the memorial fund or create your own legacy fund. A fund with your loved one’s name on it will ensure that they are remembered forever.

Like a ripple in a pond, your generosity will grow to do amazing, positive things for people in Louisa County.

Contact us today to discuss how we can help create a legacy.
