The Dubuque Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) is so grateful for the support of the McDonough Foundation.  Several projects have been funded through the Foundation, including the Childhood Immunization Program and the VNA Closet, which provides free basic necessities such as diapers and personal hygiene supplies.

The James B. and Melita A. McDonough Foundation funding was critical in making possible the renovation of historic Keane Hall ¬†— the new home to the Center for Business Analytics. The Foundation also supported the installation of technology for classrooms helping to deliver a state-of-the-art, 21st century education.

The McDonough Foundation made it possible for the Iowa Women Lead Change (IWLC) to bring to Dubuque a nationally known keynote speaker who motivated, engaged, and empowered more than 300 women at our inaugural IWLC Dubuque Conference. The McDonough Foundation’s support came at a crucial time and signaled to other organizational leaders in Dubuque that support for women’s leadership is critical and essential to a strong Iowa. – Diane Ramsey
