Metro Funders is a voluntary alliance of Black Hawk County public and private grant-makers originally formed in 1989. Its main purpose is to collect information, provide funding coordination, and prioritize information for grant making and develop financial resources for nonprofit service providers (grant seekers). Metro Funders meets every other month to discuss funding issues, needs and requests in the Cedar Valley.


Metro Funders serves as an essential provider of valuable information, training and collaborative opportunities for both funders and grant seekers and encourages an effective non-profit network in the Black Hawk County area. Metro Funders collects, manages and disseminates information and tools that simplify the grant seeking process while promoting responsible, efficient and effective delivery of services and community development in and to the Metro area.
