Community Involvement

 The history of The Hubbell-Waterman Foundation’s involvement in the Quad Cities dates back to 1967 when it made its first grant. The Foundation’s funding has supported many capital campaigns that have helped build or expand five libraries, several museums, a sports center, hospitals, mental health and hospice facilities, a zoo, and facilities for our youth, seniors, handicapped persons and a variety of facilities to house non profit organizations. Operational grants have been made that support the work that goes on in these facilities.  A partial list of the Foundation's grants is listed below.
