Metro Funders: Metro Funders is a voluntary alliance of Black Hawk County public and private grant-makers originally formed in 1989. Its main purpose is to collect information, provide funding coordination, and prioritize information for grant making and develop financial resources for nonprofit service providers (grant seekers). Metro Funders meets  every other month to discuss funding issues, needs and requests in the Cedar Valley.
