Thank you, Tony tauke!

After serving on the Community Foundation for Western Iowa's Board of Directors for nine years -- including the executive committee for six years and as Board Chairperson the last four years -- Tony Tauke celebrated his final board meeting with the Community Foundation on March 21, 2023. 

Board service for any organization is one of the toughest volunteer roles. We are incredibly grateful to Tony for his leadership, vision, dedication, and the growth our organization has experienced during his tenure. The Community Foundation's achievements, especially our name change and rebrand, would not have been possible without him.
