Participating North Liberty businesses include Cafe Muse, CarePro Pharmacy, Geek City Comics, Heyns Ice Cream, Jewelry by Harold, Leash on Life, Ledi Family Restaurant, Mirabito’s, Rage Grafix, Subway, Sugar Bottom Bikes, True Value, Vito’s on 965  and We Run. All proceeds support the North Liberty Community Fund, a permanent endowment to support projects that address local needs.

NLCF was established in 2007, as an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Johnson County, to help support the unmet needs of local organizations and to maintain a safe, vital, healthy quality of life for the community. Funds from the NLCF are distributed in the form of grants; up to five percent of the endowment fund can be granted to support local needs annually. 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 its Parent University.

Donors of the NLCF are eligible for the 25 percent Endow Iowa Tax Credit. For more information or to give to the NLCF, visit www.communityfoundationofjohnsoncounty.org and look for North Liberty Community Fund under the Give section.
