Now and Always: Supporting Special Needs Populations

Longtime Cedar Falls businessman Miller Roskamp has turned his business success into an opportunity to make a difference for local special needs children.

Miller, the founder of Roskamp Leasing, a commercial real estate management company, is a decades-long supporter of area business and nonprofits, serving on the boards of Comprehensive Systems, North Star Systems, Exceptional Persons, US Bank, Roskamp Manufacturing, Iowa Laser Technology and the Western Home Foundation, in addition to the Cedar Falls Community Foundation.

As a board member and later President of the Cedar Falls Community Foundation, Miller saw the Foundation’s careful oversight, investment, and administration of the funds entrusted to it, and how those funds make a difference in Cedar Falls.

“I knew that funds entrusted to the Cedar Falls Community Foundation would be used as the donors intended,” Miller notes. “Our family has been blessed with a special needs child, and my wife and I wanted our resources to continue to make a positive difference for the organizations that serve this population after we’re gone.”

Miller and his wife worked with their attorney, a local bank trust officer, and the Cedar Falls Community Foundation to structure a donation to the Foundation that would carry out their wishes. The Roskamp’s estate gift, thoughtfully considered and put in place now, will in the future be able to make meaningful distributions to organizations serving the special needs community.
