Pay it forward. Rise Up Iowa was developed in 2016 on that simple premise because we know that “doing good, feels good.” We know there are people and organizations in our communities who have big ideas, who dream of making a real difference…but those ideas may be going unrealized, those dreams unfulfilled. Not from a lack of passion, but from a lack of funding.
Central Iowans were invited to participate in an online application process to receive funding toward a charitable project that would help our communities Rise Up. We are proud to announce that since this program started, The Iowa Clinic Healthcare Foundation has been able to pay it forward with $185,000 to 10 local projects.
