Our Endowment Fund is hosted by the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines and allows the Waukee Betterment Foundation to give our donors opportunities to provide long-term support for organizations and projects across Waukee and Dallas County.



Each year, the Foundation will be able to provide grants representing up to 5% of the fund balance at the end of the previous calendar year. As the fund continues to grow, so will the grant amounts.


Though the foundation achieved its initial goal in reaching an Endowment Fund balance of $100,000, we strive for its continued growth to enable lasting community support! Donors interested in leaving a legacy by supporting the Endowment Fund are encouraged to contact the Waukee Betterment Foundation or visit the Community Foundation's website to see unique donor benefits that are available with these gifts.


Contributions to the WBF Endowment Fund can be made online or via check made out to "Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines" and including "WAUK15" in the memo line or check correspondence. Checks can be sent to:
