The McElroy Trust invests in opportunities that
inspire and transform
young people in northeast Iowa.

The McElroy Trust is introducing an online portal for grant submission.   Once we review your letter of intent, you’ll be invited to submit an application or we will provide feedback about your request.  Preview the questions you’ll be asked in the system:  LOI and Application.

Grant Highlight: The University of Northern Iowa is implementing the Teach Waterloo Project in collaboration with the Waterloo School District. The program supports the hard work of behavior interventionists or para(educator)s becoming teachers! Another goal of the Teach Waterloo Project is to address the disparity between minority students & teachers across Waterloo Schools. We could not be more proud to support this incredible program!
