WE FIGHT.<br />

UNITED,<br />

When Abbie hit rock bottom, her life was moving so fast, she<br />

couldn’t see where she was heading. With the help of United<br />

Way’s funded community partners, Abbie was able to get clean,<br />

pay off her debts, save money, and reunite with her kids.<br />

Connecting the dots for people like Abbie is what UWECI does<br />

best. We create a support system so people have the resources<br />

to not just bounce back but move forward.<br />

When the people in our community thrive, our community thrives.<br />

welcome<br />

Making an Impact<br />

One of the bigger lessons we learned soon after we launched the<br />

Corridor Business Journal was that a strong private sector can’t<br />

exist without a vibrant nonprofit sector. Fortunately, the Cedar<br />

Rapids/Iowa City Corridor is blessed with both.<br />

It is our hope that this <strong>Giving</strong> <strong>Guide</strong> will not only elevate the<br />

awareness of many of these worthy nonprofit organizations, but<br />

can also help connect them with the resources of the business<br />

community and beyond.<br />

This publication features profiles on area nonprofit organizations.<br />

Each profile provides a snapshot of the key information on<br />

each organization.<br />

We hope you’ll take special note of information regarding giving<br />

and volunteering opportunities for each organization. Meeting<br />

short-term and annual funding goals is always a monumental<br />

challenge for these organizations, especially as requests for services<br />

continue to increase. Our hope is every reader will be inspired<br />

by at least one organization and motivated to help out to<br />

the best of their ability. If we all do that, collectively we can make<br />

a significant positive impact in people’s lives and in our region.<br />

Please keep this publication for future reference. Your help is<br />

needed and appreciated now and all year long. Your ongoing generous<br />

donation of time, talent and treasure makes a big difference<br />

in the lives of those who desperately need a helping hand.<br />

Thank you to the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation,<br />

United Way of East Central Iowa and CliftonLarsonAllen LLP<br />

for providing the foundational support to make this publication<br />

happen. Quite simply, this publication wouldn’t have been possible<br />

without their support.<br />

And finally, a special thank you to the nonprofit community and<br />

their boards of directors, employees and volunteers for helping to<br />

make Iowa’s Creative Corridor such a special place to live and work.<br />

Tim Stiles<br />

United Way of<br />

East Central Iowa<br />

Wherever you go in our region you will find CLA employees<br />

(we refer to them as the CLA Family) giving<br />

their time, talent, and resources to make a difference.<br />

They are volunteering at social services agencies,<br />

mentoring young people, fighting food insecurity,<br />

helping others improve their living situation, protecting<br />

our environment, and lending their experience<br />

and insight to dozens of other great causes.<br />

<strong>Giving</strong> back is the CLA Family saying “thank<br />

you” for the opportunity to be a part of the communities<br />

where we serve. Nationally, our family includes<br />

more than 6,100 professionals in 120 locations,<br />

including an office here in the Corridor. Our<br />

people serve 7,000+ nonprofits, including social<br />

service and religious organizations, associations,<br />

membership organizations, foundations, and<br />

higher education institutions across the nation.<br />

One of the best examples of our community-minded<br />

focus is our unique charitable initiative<br />

— the CLA Foundation — whose mission is<br />

to create career opportunities through education,<br />

employment, and entrepreneurship. The foundation<br />

is funded exclusively by CLA employees — no<br />

outside donations or grant requests are accepted<br />

— and all nominations originate with CLA Family<br />

members. Since 2015, the CLA Foundation has<br />

granted more than $2.5 million to 110+ organizations,<br />

including several right here in the Corridor.<br />

CLA exists to create opportunities for our clients,<br />

our people, and our communities. We do this<br />

through industry-focused wealth advisory, outsourcing,<br />

audit, tax, and consulting services, and<br />

through our deep involvement in the community.<br />

Thank you for the opportunity to sponsor this<br />

<strong>Giving</strong> <strong>Guide</strong>. We look forward to helping you continue<br />

creating opportunities as volunteers, as financial<br />

supporters, and in all the ways we are connected.<br />

Nonprofit organizations create and administer<br />

programs that enable the community to seize its<br />

most promising opportunities and meet its most<br />

pressing challenges. Charitable giving is essential<br />

if those nonprofits are to achieve their missions.<br />

As a community of donors and nonprofits<br />

working together, the Corridor sustains an impressive<br />

capacity to enhance lives, solve problems,<br />

build collaborations, and ensure our future.<br />

Since becoming a public foundation in 1992, we<br />

have awarded $125 million in grants. This accomplishment<br />

has been made possible by gifts, large<br />

and small, from many different donors and has<br />

helped strengthen every part of the community.<br />

Our hope is that this <strong>Giving</strong> <strong>Guide</strong> will inspire<br />

you. There are many worthy causes represented<br />

here, and your support of them will make life better<br />

for all of us. The Greater Cedar Rapids Community<br />

Foundation is grateful for your generosity.<br />

We are proud to serve you, to share our community<br />

knowledge, and to help you make a lasting<br />

difference in your community.<br />

United Way of East Central Iowa has expertise in<br />

identifying where there are gaps of need in our community.<br />

We then work with community partners<br />

through planning, collaborating, and of course,<br />

funding, with the goal of improving the health, education,<br />

and financial stability of everyone.<br />

When the people in our community thrive, our<br />

community thrives, and for more than 100 years,<br />

we have been able to serve East Central Iowa thanks<br />

to your generosity and commitment. In that time,<br />

there have been incredible results; however, there’s<br />

still work to do.<br />

Our community partners continue to stretch<br />

their resources to provide valuable programs and<br />

services that address critical needs. Through collaboration<br />

and care coordination, they’re able to better<br />

support clients on a case-by-case basis to help them<br />

be the most successful. By working with area nonprofits,<br />

local businesses, government agencies, and<br />

you, we are confident we can win this fight.<br />

We know this <strong>Giving</strong> <strong>Guide</strong> will help you make<br />

informed choices for your charitable giving. As a recipient<br />

of the Better Business Bureau’s Torch Award<br />

for Ethics, we know how important this information<br />

can be. We encourage you to use this guide, contribute<br />

as you’re able, and join the fight in making our<br />

community a better place for everyone.<br />

United, we fight. United, we thrive.<br />

Greater Cedar Rapids<br />

Community Foundation<br />

Grows Donor Legacies<br />

The Greater Cedar Rapids Community<br />

Foundation serves as a bridge<br />

between private philanthropy and<br />

public nonprofits. Its role is to accept<br />

financial donations, nurture them for<br />

long-term growth and bestow funds to<br />

community needs and opportunities.<br />

The organization has a vast array of financial<br />

tools to safeguard donations and<br />

maximize investment returns. For many<br />

donors, the Community Foundation is<br />

an ideal way to create a lasting impact.<br />

The Role of a Community<br />

Foundation<br />

A community foundation is a public organization<br />

that coordinates donations<br />

through investments and grantmaking.<br />

Unlike private foundations, community<br />

foundations are classified by the IRS as a<br />

public charity because they receive financial<br />

contributions from diverse sources.<br />

Charitable giving from local individuals,<br />

families and businesses are then directed<br />

to a variety of fund vehicles.<br />

Donors can choose their level of involvement<br />

with their gift, such as making<br />

grant recommendations or designating<br />

support to a specific cause. Otherwise,<br />

they can entrust the Community Foundation<br />

to direct funding to areas of immediate<br />

need.<br />

“We exist to encourage and support<br />

philanthropy. Our job is to enable every<br />

person to make a difference through<br />

charitable giving,” said Les Garner, president<br />

and CEO.<br />

The Community Foundation supports<br />

the nonprofit sector in the broadest<br />

sense. It is not limited to specific<br />

initiatives or nonprofit sectors. Arts and<br />

culture programs, affordable housing,<br />

health care, social services, workforce development,<br />

volunteer emergency departments,<br />

museums, literacy, legal support,<br />

environmental organizations and neighborhood<br />

associations are all part of the<br />

local ecosystem that the Community<br />

Rachel Rockwell, a Program Officer at the Community Foundation, guides small groups during a recent community<br />

planning session for a newly established youth violence prevention fund.<br />

Foundation assists.<br />

“One of the greatest benefits of partnering<br />

with a community foundation<br />

is we match donors to causes that align<br />

with their values,” Mr. Garner explained.<br />

“Many donors are overwhelmed by<br />

which charity to pick. For example, they<br />

may be passionate about animal rescue<br />

but don’t have a relationship with a specific<br />

organization. Or because a family<br />

supports multiple causes, they need to<br />

establish a fund to maximize their donation’s<br />

reach. We take the time to get to<br />

know our donors and help them discern<br />

their charitable priorities.”<br />

A community foundation also specializes<br />

in accepting financial gifts in a multitude<br />

of forms. The Community Foundation<br />

can process securities, real estate,<br />

closely held stock and even gifts of grain.<br />

Nonprofits aren’t typically in a position to<br />

accept financial gifts on this level because<br />

these contributions require a certain level<br />

of expertise, clarified Mr. Garner.<br />

Donors can also participate in legacy<br />

or planned giving, such as designating<br />

the Community Foundation as the beneficiary<br />

of a retirement account or life<br />

insurance policy, specifying an estate gift<br />

or founding a charitable remainder trust.<br />

Throughout this process, a significant<br />

advantage to donors is that the Community<br />

Foundation handles all of the administrative<br />

details.<br />

“We take care of every ounce of paperwork<br />

and help donors navigate all<br />

legal and financial steps. Our guidance<br />

ensures your gift will nourish the community<br />

long after your natural life,” Mr.<br />

Garner said.<br />

The Community Foundation is also<br />

well-versed in federal and state tax benefits,<br />

some of which are only available<br />

by giving through a community foundation.<br />

For example, the Community<br />

Foundation has access to the Endow<br />

Nonprofit professionals gather for a monthly peer group to learn and share knowledge. The Nonprofit Network, a<br />

program at the Community Foundation, offers marketing, development, finance, management and leadership groups.<br />

The Community<br />

Foundation funded<br />

over $11 million<br />

in grants last year.<br />

Pictured below are<br />

Rochelle Naylor and<br />

Bernadette Gladish<br />

who were preparing<br />

checks from donor<br />

funds to deserving<br />

nonprofits.<br />

Iowa tax credit, which provides an income<br />

tax credit equivalent to 25 percent<br />

of a gift’s value. The gift must be made to<br />

a permanent endowment fund or used<br />

to establish one.<br />

Donors even have the option to grow<br />

their contributions until they can establish<br />

an endowed fund, which requires a<br />

minimum of $10,000. Through the Prairie<br />

Fund, donors can seed the fund with<br />

an initial $2,500 and add contributions<br />

over a five-year period.<br />

Enhancing Communities<br />

Through Grantmaking<br />

The Community Foundation distributed<br />

$11.8 million in grants in 2018. More<br />

than 980 funds were supported, with<br />

over 50 new funds established. Through<br />

the generosity of over 1,000 monetary<br />

gifts, nearly 510 nonprofits were funded.<br />

The Community Foundation has<br />

awarded $5.2 million in grants in <strong>2019</strong><br />

so far. The organization also received<br />

over $750,000 in requests for competitive<br />

grants from permanently endowed<br />

funds and funded $363,465.<br />

“As a community foundation, we are<br />

in a position to evaluate a breadth of<br />

grant proposals. Our grant programs are<br />

structured so they fund a wide range of<br />

initiatives,” noted Mr. Garner.<br />

The Community Foundation oversees<br />

a variety of funds with differing objectives,<br />

requirements and disbursement<br />

levels. The Program Fund, for example,<br />

supports new and innovative programs or<br />

sustains ongoing initiatives. Recent recipients<br />

include the Junior League of Cedar<br />

Rapids, 6th Judicial District Department<br />

of Correctional Services, Coe College and<br />

Young Parents Network (YPN).<br />

An Organizational Development<br />

Fund helps nonprofits fulfill their core<br />

mission. The Community Foundation<br />

has approved requests from the Willis<br />

Dady Emergency Shelter, AbbeHealth<br />

and Kids First Law Center during its most<br />

recent grant cycle.<br />

Many grants are also awarded through<br />

donor-advised funds. Donors take on a<br />

more active role by serving as advisors and<br />

selecting a funding priority, such as arts<br />

and culture or health and human services.<br />

In addition to families, businesses can<br />

spearhead a donor-advised fund. Participating<br />

companies include CRST International,<br />

GreatAmerica Financial Services<br />

Corporation and Lil’ Drug Store Products.<br />

Another unique opportunity through<br />

the Community Foundation is its Endowment<br />

Challenge Fund, which provides<br />

a matching grant to nonprofits in<br />

Linn County. Organizations can receive<br />

$25,000 with a five-year window to match,<br />

which supports operational stability.<br />

“Because we accept competitive grant<br />

applications, a nonprofit organization<br />

tells us their needs and how they will<br />

apply the funds,” Mr. Garner said. “We<br />

don’t dictate how funds should be used.<br />

We believe that because nonprofits are<br />

already in the trenches doing good work,<br />

they are in the best position to identify<br />

their needs. Our job is to support them<br />

in their mission.”<br />

A Partner to Nonprofits<br />

The Community Foundation’s mission<br />

doesn’t stop with charitable giving. The<br />

Community Foundation is also tasked<br />

with strengthening nonprofits.<br />

“Because we are in the endowment<br />

building business, we provide resources<br />

to nonprofits to help them create sustainable<br />

income vehicles and strengthen operational<br />

excellence,” Mr. Garner noted.<br />

One such resource is the Nonprofit Network,<br />

a program offered by the Community<br />

Foundation for peer connections and<br />

knowledge sharing. Regular collaboration<br />

empowers nonprofit professionals to form<br />

bonds with their counterparts. This is especially<br />

important for smaller organizations<br />

that have one or two staff members<br />

or are completely volunteer based.<br />

“We believe that a vibrant nonprofit<br />

sector is critical to a vibrant community,”<br />

Mr. Garner stressed. “Nonprofits<br />

are significant contributors to our local<br />

economy and the value they bring to<br />

community members is huge. They are<br />

affecting our quality of life in meaningful,<br />

tangible ways.” n<br />

Community engagement<br />

a priority for United Way<br />

of East Central Iowa<br />

Over two days in October, employees<br />

at Collins Aerospace<br />

prepared 22,258 meal packs<br />

for children and 1,600 hygiene<br />

kits for use at local shelters.<br />

In addition to providing weekend<br />

meals for those children and meeting the<br />

needs of area homeless shelters, it was<br />

the kind of community-engagement effort<br />

the United Way of East Central Iowa<br />

has made a priority in recent years.<br />

“Donors today want to see direct links<br />

between what they’re giving and what<br />

they feel is worthy of their time,” said Tim<br />

Stiles, UWECI’s president and CEO. “That<br />

gets them more likely to support with<br />

their dollars as well as with their time.”<br />

The Collins project was part of<br />

UWECI’s 63,886 volunteer hours last<br />

year performed by 3,247 people – more<br />

than $1.5 million worth, in addition to<br />

cash donations.<br />

“Everybody has more limited dollars,<br />

so they want to see what they’re giving<br />

to is making the biggest difference,” said<br />

Shannon Hanson, UWECI vice president<br />

for marketing and communications.<br />

So, United Way, which funded 24<br />

partner agencies on a $10.6 million budget<br />

in fiscal 2018, compiles data into a<br />

series of reports on community needs.<br />

Drawing on information UWECI has<br />

collected for years, the reports guide<br />

what programs the organization invests<br />

in based on how local agencies are working<br />

to meet those needs.<br />

“We’re trying to show where the<br />

needs are, based on research and data<br />

within the community, and then filling<br />

those gaps,” Ms. Hanson said. “We’ve<br />

created this library in different areas to<br />

show that this expertise is in our community.<br />

We have a full community building<br />

team that’s dedicated to that research<br />

and data, and the follow-up with our<br />

nonprofits that are funded.”<br />

Available on UWECI’s website, the reports<br />

also help partner agencies identify<br />

unaddressed needs and design programs<br />

to efficiently meet them.<br />

“Agencies come to the table saying,<br />

‘We’re providing this service but we’re also<br />

seeing people who need this (additional<br />

service),’” Mr. Stiles said. “So, they look for<br />

an organization that can fill the need, and<br />

from there it just kind of grows.”<br />

Changing donor expectations have<br />

also altered UWECI’s approach to prospective<br />

donors.<br />

“In the last two to three years, we’ve<br />

talked to donors or Joe and Jane CEO<br />

and the response is, ‘We give to a lot of<br />

organizations and a lot of causes, we<br />

want to make sure there’s not duplication<br />

of services. Are they working together<br />

collaboratively?’” Mr. Stiles said.<br />

“That’s what they want to see, that collaborative<br />

approach. Non-duplication<br />

and coordination is very important.”<br />

The emphasis on appealing to younger<br />

donors’ interest has also led to “micro-volunteering”<br />

efforts such as Volunteers on<br />

Tap, in which volunteers gather for a few<br />

hours after work to address a partner<br />

agency’s specific need. Such events are<br />

staged by UWECI’s Young Leaders Society,<br />

a leadership giving society for donors<br />

under 40 who’ve given at least $250.<br />

“They do these small but quick volunteering<br />

opportunities. The last one<br />

we did had 50 people,” said Ms. Hanson.<br />

“The one before that, there was maybe<br />

25 or 30. So we’re seeing that grow.”<br />

Baby boomers aren’t overlooked, either.<br />

“They not only have the expertise,<br />

but now they have the time,” Mr. Stiles<br />

said. “People in our generation are<br />

leaving the workplace for retirement.<br />

We want to tap into that.”<br />

Serving Linn, Benton, Cedar, Iowa,<br />

and Jones counties, UWECI is “starting<br />

to get out more to the rural communities<br />

as well,” Mr. Stiles said. “People live and<br />

work in those communities and don’t always<br />

realize the services United Way agencies<br />

are providing are helping them, too.<br />

It’s an education curve. We let them know<br />

more about services in their community<br />

and, in turn, they learn more about us.”<br />

United Way’s traditional strength in<br />

networking, whether among donors or<br />

member agencies, positions it well to<br />

continue to meet community needs.<br />

“It would be hard to find a nonprofit<br />

that doesn’t work with other ones,” Ms.<br />

Hanson said.<br />

“One thing that hasn’t changed is the<br />

importance of our partners,” Mr. Stiles<br />

said. “They’re the ones doing the work,<br />

and it’s their willingness to not only collaborate<br />

but to work in unison. The services<br />

they deliver have adapted to meet<br />

the needs in the community. So, the<br />

agency partners are really crucial and the<br />

partners we have do a really good job of<br />

leveraging resources.” n<br />

us to grant $1 million to deserving<br />

organizations in the coming year.<br />

in touch with financial trends, tax regulations,<br />

and other matters.<br />

Leading by Example<br />

Business Leaders Discuss Joy<br />

of <strong>Giving</strong> Back to Community<br />

By Katharine Carlon<br />

katharine@corridorbusiness.com<br />

Whether their motivation is finding greater meaning in life, making<br />

the community a better place to live or building valuable relationships<br />

while doing good, Corridor business leaders agree that being<br />

influential goes far beyond what happens in the workplace.<br />

Below, along with an abbreviated list of nonprofit work past and<br />

present, leaders explain how they wield their influence outside the<br />

workplace and what giving back means to them.<br />

Leighton Smith<br />

Director of Client Service, BerganKDV<br />

Board chair and founder, 100+ Men Who Care: Hawkeye<br />

Chapter; board member and vice chair, Iowa Women’s Foundation;<br />

board chair, treasurer and volunteer, North Liberty<br />

Community Pantry; campaign team leader and 100+ hour<br />

annual volunteer, United Way Worldwide<br />

Mr. Smith grew up seeing community service modeled<br />

by his family, especially his late grandmother, who<br />

threw herself into volunteer work for her church and<br />

growing food in the garden for the local food pantry.<br />

“I lost my grandmother at a young age, and that was<br />

a huge inspiration,” said Mr. Smith, who lists founding<br />

the largest-giving 100+ Who Care chapter in the world<br />

and transforming the North Liberty Food Pantry from<br />

“a closet in the Methodist church” to a permanent facility<br />

serving hundreds of hungry families as some of the<br />

proudest accomplishments of his volunteer career.<br />

“I think a lot of times, we’re trying to find meaning<br />

to life, and certainly volunteerism is a great venue to<br />

learn new things and try out a new skillset,” he said.<br />

“And along the line, I realized I really cared about the<br />

place I live in. I got emotionally invested and wanted to<br />

give my energy to social entrepreneurialism … as a way<br />

of fostering a sense of community connectedness and<br />

strengthening the social fabric.”<br />

Mr. Smith said kindness in the Corridor is a “natural<br />

resource” that leaders should be tapping through example:<br />

“There are a lot of people in need who deserve help,<br />

and I think to whom more is given, more is expected –<br />

that’s how grandma would have said it.”<br />

Lura McBride<br />

President and CEO, Van Meter Inc.<br />

Board member, Tanager Place, Iowa BIG, the Hall-Perrine<br />

Foundation, UnityPoint-St. Luke’s Hospital and the Cedar<br />

Rapids Police Chief Advisory Committee; member, Tippie<br />

Advisory Board<br />

For Ms. McBride, who embraces the “servant mindset”<br />

both in the workplace and in the community,<br />

giving is tantamount to getting in terms of rewards.<br />

“I learn a lot, and it’s an opportunity to meet a<br />

lot of people and build relationships – that camaraderie<br />

of working with others to make a difference is<br />

personally really valuable,” she said. “I want to give,<br />

but often, I get so much more in return through the<br />

people I meet and the experiences I have.”<br />

Ms. McBride said one area that has been especially rewarding<br />

has been working with youth, helping prepare<br />

them for the next stages in their education, career goals<br />

and serving the community, particularly through Iowa<br />

BIG. Leading a company where one of the core values is<br />

“making a difference in the communities where we live<br />

and work” is a similar privilege, she added.<br />

“<strong>Giving</strong> back is part of everyday work life at Van<br />

Meter and that’s a pretty cool thing,” she said of her<br />

company, which encourages employees to give time as<br />

well as money, and work together doing so. “We want<br />

people to be their personal best both inside and outside<br />

of work.”<br />

Modeling that behavior starts at the top, she added,<br />

“because when you talk about leadership, I do think<br />

we are responsible to show it’s not about us – it’s about<br />

others and to lead by example. Leaders underestimate<br />

how much influence they have, and they have a responsibility<br />

to be mindful and thoughtful about the<br />

actions they take because others are taking their cue.”<br />

HOW TO HELP<br />

The American Heart Association, the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization<br />

dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke, depends on the time, talent and<br />

attending an upcoming event in The Corridor. The American Heart Association is an<br />

easy organization to support, accepting both donations of money and time. To get<br />

Quota International, Inc.,<br />

founded in 1919, is a service<br />

organization dedicated to<br />

community and worldwide<br />

service. We donate hundreds<br />

of thousands of volunteer hours<br />

helping others around the world.<br />

Our local Cedar Rapids Club was<br />

chartered in 1940 with emphasis<br />

given to services for the hearing<br />

and speech impaired, as well<br />

as service to disadvantaged<br />

women and children. Our Quota<br />

International of Cedar Rapids<br />

Charitable Trust is a 501(c) (3) per<br />

IRS guidelines. Therefore, all gifts<br />

to our Trust are tax deductible in<br />

the United States, to the extent<br />

permitted by law.<br />

Over the course of the past 79<br />

years, our local club has worked<br />

in the Cedar Rapids community<br />

helping people. From providing<br />

the initial start-up funding for<br />

newborn hearing screening at<br />

both local hospitals; providing<br />

dental hygiene packs to patients<br />

at the Community Free Medical<br />

Clinic; providing hearing aids to<br />

children in families with financial<br />

need; to purchasing phonic<br />

ears at Theatre Cedar Rapids<br />

to aid those people who are<br />

hard of hearing – we are actively<br />

involved in supporting people in<br />

our community.<br />

Through our organization,<br />

teaching aides have been<br />

supplied to schools to be used in<br />

classrooms with hearing impaired<br />

students. And, we’ve purchased<br />

IPADs/computers for children who<br />

were having trouble learning due<br />

to their disability. Scholarships are<br />

awarded to individuals who are<br />

either deaf or hard-of-hearing,<br />

or going into a deaf related field<br />

of study. We’ve also supplied<br />

backpacks to the schools in rural<br />

Linn County, along with daily<br />

necessity items and clothing, for<br />

the students there.<br />

In partnership with a local<br />

organization called Deafinitely<br />

Dogs, we have sponsored three<br />

service dogs being trained for<br />

hearing assistance, diabetic alert<br />

or PTSD support. In the spring,<br />

we host an 8th Grade Honors<br />

Luncheon where two nominees<br />

from each school are recognized<br />

for their achievements and<br />

personal growth as a student.<br />

And, we’ve supplied clothes and<br />

daily necessity items to the local<br />

women’s shelters.<br />

Our Cops ‘n‘ Kids program<br />

promotes literacy by providing<br />

books to police officers in both<br />

Cedar Rapids and Marion to<br />

handout to children in the more<br />

impoverished areas of our<br />

community. Our primary goal<br />

is to encourage children of all<br />

ages to read and help them to<br />

recognize the opportunities that<br />

good reading skills provide to<br />

them. Age appropriate books,<br />

from pre-school through the 8th<br />

grade, are given to youngsters<br />

by police officers. This program<br />

not only encourages literacy, but<br />

also works toward enhancing<br />

the rapport between children<br />

and the Police Department. By<br />

providing books to children who<br />

otherwise might not have many,<br />

if any, of their own, officers will<br />

be promoting positive youth<br />

development. Since inception,<br />

we have provided over 65,000<br />

books through this program.<br />

Business Leaders Discuss Joy<br />

of <strong>Giving</strong> Back to Community<br />

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 43<br />

Larry Helling<br />

CEO, Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust<br />

Board member and past president, Entrepreneurial Development<br />

Center; board member and past chair, Cedar Rapids Metro Economic<br />

Alliance Policy Board; current board member, past board chair<br />

and campaign chair, United Way of East Central Iowa; board of<br />

trustees, Brucemore<br />

Mr. Helling thinks of his nonprofit and board work as another<br />

important form of leadership, remarking that “if I don’t step<br />

up, how can I expect my associates, employees and colleagues<br />

to do so?”<br />

However, his primary motivation for serving changed, he<br />

said, when his kids went to college and began talking about<br />

their futures.<br />

“We’ve got to make this a place my kids – and other kids –<br />

want to live,” said Mr. Helling, a father of four. “We’ve made<br />

big progress in the last 10 to 15 years, but there is still a lot to<br />

do in terms of amenities, activities and quality of life, and my<br />

kids drove that home to me.”<br />

In addition to helping make the community more livable, Mr.<br />

Helling said he feels an obligation to help stitch together a social<br />

safety net for people who don’t have the advantages he did growing<br />

up – good parents, a roof over his head and enough to eat.<br />

“There’s also a selfish part to this,” he added of his nonprofit<br />

and board experience. “We want lots of businesses to be more<br />

successful in the community we operate in, to be more vibrant<br />

in the long run – and that’s especially true in banking.”<br />

Jill Ackerman<br />

President, Marion Chamber of Commerce<br />

Board member, Marion Cares, House of Hope, Marion Library<br />

Foundation and Iowa Chamber of Commerce Executives; ex-officio<br />

member, MEDCO board; steering committee, Regional YMCA of<br />

Marion and Prospect Meadows<br />

Leaders have an obligation to improve the communities they<br />

work in, Ms. Ackerman said, and that goes double when the<br />

mission of your job is literally improving the health and<br />

well-being of your city.<br />

“Part of being an influential person is being aware of<br />

your surroundings and all of the things happening in your<br />

community,” she said. “And while some of those things<br />

are great, some are on the somber side, especially thinking<br />

about kids in need, so an incredibly important part of leadership<br />

is giving back.”<br />

That is especially important in her role at the helm of the<br />

Marion Chamber, a nonprofit itself, tasked with bolstering<br />

Marion’s commerce, community and culture. Among the<br />

community projects Ms. Ackerman is proudest of participating<br />

in are the Klopfenstein Amphitheater for the Performing<br />

Arts, which opened in May; the upcoming $19.5 million regional<br />

YMCA facility along Tower Terrace Road; the new Marion<br />

library project; new splash pads; and headway on area<br />

trails. She also cited the Imagine8 visioning project, which<br />

identified 1,800 ideas for community improvements, ultimately<br />

narrowing them to eight the city is pursuing with vigor.<br />

“I feel truly lucky working with the chamber, where we really<br />

truly make a difference in the way Marion grows,” Ms. Ackerman<br />

said. “It’s great to have a job where you can have such a<br />

big impact on the Marion community and its residents.”<br />

Duane Smith<br />

CEO, TrueNorth<br />

Board member, Tanager Place; advisory board member, Cedar Rapids<br />

Metro Economic Alliance; foundation trustee board, University<br />

of Northern Iowa<br />

Taking inspiration from author Dan Sullivan’s “The Laws of<br />

Lifetime Growth,” Mr. Smith said he believes giving back infuses<br />

life with a meaning greater than money, and helps direct<br />

and focus individual talents and energies.<br />

“<strong>Giving</strong> back to the community is really an investment, not an<br />

expense if you do it right,” said Mr. Smith, who promotes volunteerism<br />

heavily within TrueNorth, and hopes to show by example<br />

“that there are both financial returns and intellectual returns<br />

with involvement in nonprofits and community endeavors.”<br />

Mr. Smith said the ability to attract people to the community<br />

– “both young people and those who are old and<br />

seasoned” – is influenced by the work of boards and nonprofits<br />

to strengthen and improve the community. One<br />

thing he’s learned with experience, and a variety of different<br />

appointments, is to make sure individual talents and<br />

the mission are aligned.<br />

“In earlier years, I would often sit through long board<br />

meetings not really using my talent,” he said. “The highest<br />

return for me is if I’m working strategically with the board<br />

and executive team, but if your unique talent is on the financial<br />

side, work on the audit committee. If you’re in marketing,<br />

work within the marketing side. Play to your strengths.” CBJ<br />
