It is the Vision of The Amy Helpenstell Foundation Fund to honor the memory and to meet the charitable and educational objectives of Amy E. Helpenstell within the Quad Cities Area by supporting programs for:

  • Youth development
  • Community development
  • Cultural activities
  • Health
Educational Programs

  • Scholarships or other programs
  • Grants to Colleges or Universities
  • For residents of the Quad Cities Area in 
    - Primary 
    - Secondary 
    - Post-Secondary

This fund does not expect to operate programs itself, but rather to provide grants to organizations with programs consistent with the objectives of this fund. It is anticipated that this fund will distribute its annual grants among organizations, and will not generally provide multi-year grants. Grant requests generally will not be solicited. 


"Our fund allows us to support programs that enhance the lives of children, individuals, families and businesses."
