MOLINE, ILLINOIS (January 29, 2019) — The Lee McAllister Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2011 by his family. This scholarship honors his desire to help young people pursue education and become productive members of their community.

BETTENDORF, Iowa - The Quad City Contributors Council has launched a new website - http://qccontributorscouncil.org - to give nonprofits in the Quad City area an easy way to apply for review of major capital and endowment campaigns.

The Quad Cities Contributors Council (QCCC) is a consortium of seventeen corporate and private foundation leaders. The QCCC does not award dollars, but is a group that works together to promote the success of Scott and Rock Island counties' non-profit organizations.

The QCCC reviews capital and endowment campaign applications. The group's goal is to provide guidance that will assist in assuring that approved projects are financially viable, fully fundable, non-duplicative and strengthening to the organization and the community.

The website provides the application that nonprofits use to seek review of their campaigns, and a listing of the approved projects.

"We hope that nonprofits will find it easy to apply for review through the website," says Kenny Massey, Chairman of the QCCC. "The Contributors Council believes that the review process for capital campaigns increases the capacity of nonprofits to be successful in their major fundraising efforts."

In recent years, the QCCC has approved 16 capital campaigns for Quad City nonprofits.

If you have questions, please contact the QCCC at info@qccontributorscouncil.org.
