Growing Stronger, Together

The GreenState Foundation was founded to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve in Iowa and Illinois. We do this by promoting the financial health and well-being of our neighborhoods, schools, and our society at large. We give generously to programs and projects that assist in making every place a better, safer place to live, work and play.

2024 Grant Request Deadlines: January 5th, April 5th, July 5th, and October 4th.  
Applications submitted after the deadline will be automatically moved to the next quarterly funding cycle.

Branches Of Giving

Financial Education

Education around finance encourages fiscally responsible behavior. We pursue equitable projects and programs that help possess the skills, experience, and knowledge to make informed decisions.


We believe a stable home is the foundation for everything in life. Being able to afford a safe place to live is a key part of the American dream of opportunity.

Childhood Healthcare

Our children are our future, and we seek out organizations that provide direct or supportive services for their mental and physical health needs.
