NORTH LIBERTY - A treasure hunt, with a grand prize of four tickets to the Oct. 1 Iowa Hawkeyes’ football game versus Northwestern, is set to help raise funds and awareness of the North Liberty Community Fund (NLCF).
Entry fees for the Grow Our Community Treasure Hunt are $25. Participants will visit local businesses to collect stamps on a Community Fund card from Sept. 2 to 11, and then submit completed cards for a chance to win the prize drawing. To sign up and get your card with the first business stamp, visit Great Western Bank in North Liberty on Sept. 2.
“The Treasure Hunt will help raise funding so the Community Fund can continue to help meet the needs of this growing, vibrant community.” said Mary K. Mitchell, community fund board representative.
NLCF was established in 2007, as an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Johnson County, to help support the unmet needs of local organizations and to maintain a safe, vital, healthy quality of life for the community. Funds from the NLCF are distributed in the form of grants; up to 5 percent of the endowment fund can be granted to support local needs annually. NLCF supports local community causes, including the Veterans Dinner at the North Liberty American Legion Auxiliary, the North Liberty Community Pantry Gardening project and their new building, and the North Liberty Family Resource Center for its Parent University.
Donors of the NLCF are eligible for the 25 percent Endow Iowa Tax Credit. For more information or to give to the NLCF, visit www. communityfoundationofjohnsonco unty.org and look for North Liberty Community Fund under the Give section.
