Community Foundation

The Muscatine Community School District Foundation officially dissolved in 2019. All scholarship assets were turned over to the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine.

For questions on scholarships and/or how to establish a scholarship opportunity for Muskie students, please contact the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine at (563) 264-3863.

Why Should I Give?

You have the power to make a difference in a student’s life. As the cost of education continues to rise, the gift of a scholarship or partial scholarship may be the only thing that enables a student to go on to higher education.

You may wish to give your support to an existing program in which you have an interest. Your gift may be used to help support programs which have inadequate funding or to help meet unexpected financial emergencies.

Unrestricted gifts are also helpful because of the flexibility.

How Can I Give?

Support may be given in the form of gifts or bequests.

Large gifts can be used to establish perpetual funds, in the name of a donor or in memory of a donor, with the income generated each year to be given as a scholarship. Large gifts are funds yielding scholarships of $500 minimum.

Smaller gifts can be used to provide a one-time scholarship or they can be pooled to provide for general scholarship grants.

Check with the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine to discuss tax-deductible gifts and specific tax laws that may make certain types of giving more advantageous to you than others.
