Better Together


At the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines, our mission is to improve quality of life for all by promoting charitable giving, connecting donors with causes they care about and providing leadership on important community issues. We are simply better together.

We live in a generous community, but with so many wonderful local nonprofits, staying up to date on the most pressing needs in our community can be a challenge. We created GIVEdsm to make giving simple. GIVEdsm is an online resource that provides the opportunity to learn about the needs and opportunities of our community and offer support to those that match your interest.


Learn. Give. Better Together.


Be part of our community’s solutions by supporting the needs of nonprofit organizations listed on GIVEdsm. You can select your areas of interest and see profiles of available projects. Each profile provides the opportunity to learn more and then give. This is impact made easy.


Interested in Creating a Profile?


If you are a local nonprofit interested in posting a project to GIVEdsm, please contact our team for login details.

You will simply complete an online project form that asks the name of the project for which you are seeking support, a description of what you have planned, a photo, a funding goal and a date by which the money needs to be raised. Our team will use this information to review your interactive profile and help you make connections that count.
