Most matching gift programs have a minimum and maximum amount they will match per employee per year with a set match ratio. While 1:1 matches are the most common, matching gifts can be a variety of ratios.
Businesses that offer matches include CUNA Mutual, John Deere, Target and US Bank. Ask your employer today about a matching gift to Iowa Heartland.

Charitable IRA Rollover
How the IRA charitable rollover works:
- The donor is age 70½ or older on the day of the gift.
- The donor transfers up to $100,000 directly from the donor’s IRA to one or more qualified charities. This opportunity applies only to IRAs and not to other types of retirement plans.
- The donor does not receive any goods or services in return for the rollover gift in order to qualify for tax-free treatment.
An IRA rollover gift to a donor-advised fund or supporting organization is not allowed. However, assets can be rolled over to other types of funds held at the Community Foundation.
Your gift must be made by December 31 to qualify for the current year. For more information, please call 319-235-9946 or the Community Foundation at 319-287-9106.
Corporate & Foundation Giving
Corporate partnerships enable Iowa Heartland to build more homes in the community while building employee morale and a sense of corporate responsibility. Some companies engage at the grass-roots level, often by departments using team-building dollars to get involved and support a shared cause. We welcome corporate sponsorships at all levels from $100–1,000,000.
Philanthropic foundations consider Iowa Heartland’s building programs the ideal manifestation of funding objectives, as we partner to transform lives and our city. From small family foundations to large charities, foundation gifts are used to support operations, building projects and capital expenses.
From our earliest days, faith-based organizations have put their faith into action to build hope and transform lives. Like Habitat for Humanity International, Iowa Heartland is founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, decent, affordable place to live in dignity and safety.
Iowa Heartland provides a powerful opportunity for all people to put their core beliefs about justice, loving our neighbors, equity and the environment into bricks and mortar action.
