Bank Iowa Corp. announced a list of 19 Iowa organizations that will receive funds through its community giving program, Helping Hand. The crowdsourced initiative asked community members from the 23 communities in its market area to submit ideas for the bank to help fund. The West Des Moines community bank donated approximately $20,000 through the program, with gifts between $500 and $3,000. Projects ranged from addressing food insecurity to providing books for children and supplementing nonprofits’ revenue from canceled fundraising events. “On behalf of the entire Bank Iowa team, I thank the organizers, leaders and neighbors who took the time to let us know where our contributions will have the greatest impact,” Bank Iowa President and CEO Jim Plagge said. “We’re so excited to see all the creative programs and big ideas Helping Hand funds will help bring to life.”
