Foundation Giving

Asked March 14, 2019, 11:08 AM EDT

Does Linn County have an Iowa State Research and Extension Foundation? If so, when was it started. I am serving on the Executive Board of the Wyandotte County, KS K State Research and Extension and we are researching the prospect of the creation of a foundation and seeking advice, knowledge and resources such as by-laws and Articles of Incorporation if possible. I chose Linn County because of the Blue Zones Project and population. I was also curious if the Extension office has partnered with the City of Cedar Rapids to assist expanding and promoting the Blue Zones Project. Thank you, Marsha Toler, Executive Board Member, K State Research and Extension, Wyandotte County, Kansas
