A Strong Tomorrow Endowment Campaign
The Foundation of Cornerstone Communities applied for and was approved for a $75,000 challenge grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque Small Town Dreams Initiative in late 2020 to build its endowment to $450,000. The growth of the Foundation endowment will result in a larger annual payout to fund more projects into the future.
Within the first quarter of 2021, the first milestone in the “quiet phase” was met with gifts and pledges secured over three years by the FCC Board, GMHC leadership and physicians, making the total raised, with the match, $225,000.
In the summer, the Foundation launched the second “community phase” with a campaign called “A Strong Tomorrow” to raise an additional $225,000 to meet the challenge grant goal of $450,000. GMHC staff stepped up with pledges and gifts totaling $36,210.
Thanks to our generous donors, the Foundation is less than $20,000 away from reaching the endowment goal as of December 31, 2021.
We celebrate this past year’s donors in both the quiet phase and the community phase who share the Foundation’s common goal of protecting the future of local healthcare. Thank you!
