Tama Community Foundation seeking volunteers

The Tama County Community Foundation, an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa, is also seeking new volunteers to serve on its impact committee beginning in April 2024.

The impact committee position description and volunteer interest form can be found at www.cfneia.org/volunteer. Individuals may complete a volunteer self-interest form or may nominate someone else, such as a colleague, community leader or friend, to connect the Community Foundation with to explore interest in serving as a volunteer.

The deadline to submit a volunteer interest form for initial consideration is Jan. 15, 2024. The impact committee seeks to understand the needs of Tama County to ensure alignment between those needs and Foundation grants. The primary function and responsibility of the committee is to invest in nonprofits through the discretionary grant process, which distributes more than $100,000 annually. The committee will implement best practices in grantmaking, uphold trust-based practices and reflect CFNEIA’s values in grant decision-making with the goal of maximizing the impact of those grants. The committee works closely with CFNEIA staff to collaboratively achieve shared goals.

Questions about volunteering may be directed to Shanda Hansen, director of affiliate impact at the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa, at shansen@cfneia.org or 319-243-1357.
