Funds from the NLCF are distributed in the form of grants and up to 5 percent of the endowment fund can be granted to support local needs annually. The 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 their Parent University.
