Community Resources

Whether you’re a lifelong resident of Armour, a newcomer or are just considering a move to town, here is a list of community resources that will help you find most anything you need.

Armour Community Foundation

Armour Community Foundation
Board of Directors (from left):
Becca Ymker, Ruth Harrington, Jay Spaans,
Don Putnam, Jim Werkmeister and Mark Fuoss.

The Armour Community Foundation is a non-profit, 501 (c) (3) tax exempt public organization created to attract and distribute charitable funds for the benefit of the Armour area. The Armour Community Foundation serves and is to function as a “savings account” for the Armour community. It is NOT the same as the Armour Development Corporation or the Armour Non-Profit Development Corporation. In fact, the role of the Armour Community Foundation is very different. The community foundation provides a way for people to reinvest in their community by investing in a permanent endowment. As the principal grows, so does the spendable interest. Only interest income is distributed, so the funds are never depleted. This allows the Armour Community Foundation to grow and award grants to non-profit groups within the Armour Community indefinitely. All types of donations are accepted. For example, donations can be made in honor of a birthday, anniversary or as a memorial. In those cases, the person honored will receive a card and the donor will receive documentation for charitable gift purposes. Larger gifts, such as estate gifts, are also welcome. Gifts can be made by giving a donation to anyone on the board of directors.
