The Larned A. Waterman Iowa Nonprofit Resource Center

Welcome to the INRC

The Larned A. Waterman Iowa Nonprofit Resource Center is in the process of developing a new website which will combine INRC resources with the Iowa Grants Guide. On the Iowa Grants Guide page, a link to the original database is provided and will be active until the new version is ready for users.

The INRC strives to help Iowa’s charitable nonprofit organizations become more effective in building their communities. We appreciate your patience as we retool our information and resources. In the meantime, feel free to contact us with your comments and suggestions.
