It's grant time!

Alliant Energy Foundation’s Leah Rodenberg shares about community support and finding your volunteer fit

This spring, our Alliant Energy Foundation awarded grants to 237 nonprofits, totaling nearly $550,000. We caught up with Leah Rodenberg at the Alliant Energy Foundation to learn more.
 
Illuminate: This spring, the Foundation awarded grants to 237 nonprofits. What does a grant do?

LR: A grant is a donation that supports specific programming from an organization. We support nonprofits in Alliant Energy communities that make a difference for Families, Education, Environment and Diversity. 

Illuminate: Specifically, what causes will the Spring 2020 grants support?

LR: We provide funding for housing, hunger relief, STEM education – especially for underrepresented kids, workforce readiness, safety and environmental stewardship programs. We also support disaster-relief efforts and have provided $343,000 to date for COVID-19 emergency programs.
 
Illuminate: That’s a lot of different causes! Are you able to get to know most of the groups you support?

LR: In many cases, yes. I’ve been with our company for 24 years and have built many relationships throughout the state. I especially love getting to visit in person. It’s an opportunity to see what’s happening at the nonprofit – what’s new? What do they need? We brainstorm ways Alliant Energy can partner with them – like sponsorships or volunteering. I always ask, “How can we help?”

Illuminate: I want to make a difference in my community. Where do I start?

LR: Start at volunteeriowa.org. They have a statewide database where nonprofits post opportunities and needs. You’ll get a flavor of what’s available. It’s all about pairing up your passion with your community’s needs.
