Non-Profits Awarded Funds from Foundation for the Future of Delaware County

The Foundation for the Future of Delaware County has awarded nearly $80,000 to local non-profits.

The Foundation receives funds each year from the State of Iowa County Endowment Program, which distributes a percentage of the state’s gaming revenue to counties that don’t hold a state-issued gaming license. Seventy-five percent of the money is granted out, while the other 25% is maintained in a permanent endowment.
