The Cedar Falls Community Foundation is an accredited community foundation and its donors have access to Endow Iowa tax credits.

All potential donors are encouraged to consult with their personal tax advisors, accountants, or attorneys before making donations.  The Cedar Falls Community Foundation will work with you and your trusted advisor to create a legacy that is best suited to meeting your goals.
