Since 1993, area residents have been turning to the South Central Iowa Community Foundation to make their philanthropic giving as effective as possible.
We are a public charity serving thousands of people who share a common concern-improving the quality of life in Clarke, Decatur, Lucas, Ringgold and Union Counties in South Central Iowa.

Lamoni Freedom Fund Grants 2023
The Lamoni Freedom Fund was created over 20 years ago by a generous gift from a family that loved the Lamoni community. Lamoni benefits from the interest made from that gift. Every year, approximately $30,000 goes back to the Lamoni community for projects, repairs and services needed!
