Fiscal Agent Program

The Cedar Rapids Community Schools Foundation may serve as the fiduciary agent for donations requested to go through the Foundation that are earmarked for a Cedar Rapids Community School or those affiliated with a project or program to benefit the school district, its students and/or staff. The foundation assesses a 5% Administrative Fee to all receipted funds. In exchange, the Foundation provides the organization with updated donor lists, financial reports, gift acknowledgement service, credit card payments, etc.

Benefits of Using Foundation as Fiscal Agent

“It has been terrific to have some of our Johnson funds managed by the Foundation’s fiscal agency program. It is a relief to know that our donated funds are being handled appropriately and in line with District guidelines. I am very appreciative that this service is offered!”

Candace Lynch, Principal, Johnson STEAM Academy
