Operational Funds

Global Ties Iowa receives a small grant from the US Department of State to support citizen diplomacy initiatives in our community. The balance of the funds necessary to promote professional exchange programs in eastern Iowa comes from the generosity of our members and donors. Can you make a contribution today to help us build global ties locally?

Global Ties Iowa applied for, and received, a $6,236.50 CFJC grant to support a new “Ensuring the Future of Citizen Diplomacy” endowment building campaign. Now, we need to grow it! Over the next ten years, we’re aiming for $350,000, which would secure the organization’s future for the next generation of citizen diplomats. A special thanks to the Community Foundation and the Angerer Family Fund, which made the gift possible.
