Funding supports charitable work benefiting Jasper County residents. Geisler-Penquite Foundation grants, which are available only to Jasper County (Iowa) non-profits, must be invested by recipient organizations and held in a dedicated Geisler-Penquite Endowment. Each year, only earnings from the Endowment may be utilized to fund organizations’ current operations, projects, or special programs.
