Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines Better Together Fund

No one knows, exactly, what tomorrow may bring for our community. What needs and opportunities will arise? What important work will be required to continue improving quality of life? What can we do now to help assure that future needs are met?

The Better Together Fund was created to address these questions. It presents an opportunity for all who love Greater Des Moines to invest in our community’s most important issues, opportunities and needs for generations to come. Think of it as our savings account for the future. The flexible dollars it provides enables the Community Foundation to respond to emerging needs as they arise – and deliver significant funding leadership to initiatives that strengthen both our community and our future.

While we can’t predict the future, we can play a role today in positioning our community for continued success. We are simply Better Together…
