Grinnell Area Arts Council has partnered with the Greater Poweshiek Community Foundation (GPCF) to build an Arts Endowment to ensure the organization's financial sustainability. Qualifying gifts made through a community foundation are eligible for significant state tax credits through the Endow Iowa program. Today, the Endowment Fund has a value of over $600,000. Our goal is to have the Endowment Fund surpass the $1 million mark.

Learn the various ways of giving to the Endowment Fund by visiting this page on the GPCF website or contact Nicole Brua-Behrens, the Foundation's executive director.

Gifts should be made payable to the Greater Poweshiek Community Foundation with "GAAC Endowment" in the memo field, if paying by check. Contributions should be mailed directly to the Foundation:

Greater Poweshiek Community Foundation
Post Office Box 344
Grinnell, Iowa  50112

Do you have a creative skill or talent you would like to teach? Past classes include drawing, ceramics, creative writing, and theatre. Take a look at our current offerings for specific ideas. Our education program typically runs in three seasons: winter / spring, summer, and fall.
