MUSCATINE, Iowa–Muscatine Charities will help Muscatine children, seniors, those with special needs, and those less fortunate through an immediate $50,000 donation, in collaboration with the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine.

“Working closely with the Community Foundation, an organization that has a real pulse for where the greatest needs are, Muscatine Charities came together and made the decision to act now,” said President of the Muscatine Charities Board of Directors John Krieger: “The team behind Muscatine Charities is passionate about making Muscatine a great place to live for all of our neighbors. We hope this donation makes a meaningful impact at a time when many are struggling.”

Traditionally, organizations supported by Muscatine Charities funding would wait until the end of the year to apply for grant money. Due to the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the granting period will open early on Tuesday, July 21, 2020. At that time, area charities will be able to apply for grant money through the Muscatine Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine website.

“The Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine is proud to support Muscatine Charities Inc. in their continued work to strategically fund initiatives aimed at the most vulnerable within our community,” said Executive Director of the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine Charla Schafer: “We are grateful for the vision of urgency that the Muscatine Charities Board has adopted in an effort to address the increased need for funding within our non-profit community. Through the generosity of their donors, their $50,000 will immediately provide stabilization, reduce fears of service interruption, and strengthen the lives of our neighbors.”

“Many generous past supporters of Muscatine Charities have received recent literature asking for a donation – thank you to those Muscatine residents who are giving through that initiative,” said Cash Contribution Chair of Muscatine Charities Tom Hendricks. “We were founded on the idea that we could get much-needed funding to local groups in an effective and timely manner.”

Information and instructions on how to apply will be posted on Muscatine Charities website as soon as the granting period opens.
