A Time to Give Thanks
The Iowa Gaming Association would like to say thank you to the non-profit license holders and qualified community county foundations who received more than $40 million from the 18 commercial casinos’ gaming revenue this past year. They then did exhaustive reviews of criteria and issued grants to thousands of deserving worthy projects in all 99 counties. It is rewarding to see the vast impact of how these gaming dollars stretch into virtually every corner of the state. The commercial casinos are a viable part of Iowa’s economy, whether it's investing in small-town projects, rebuilding infrastructure, preserving Iowa's incredible natural landscapes, or impacting our citizens in many other beneficial ways.
The gaming industry is proud to be a part of a culture in this state that gives generously – and hopes this annual initiative can be a catalyst for building more philanthropy within each county. If you have a worthwhile non-profit project, check the links to the entity in your county for the grant guidelines and criteria. Best wishes for a thankful, wonderful Thanksgiving!
