$400,000 Grant Announced to The Nature Conservancy

The Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine announces a grant in the amount of $400,000 has been awarded to The Nature Conservancy from the Richard H. and Mary Jo Stanley Environment Preservation Support Fund.

Following Dick and Mary Jo’s passing, their legacy of giving continues through designated funds established at the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine.


“Dick and Mary Jo were world citizens, committed to understanding and strengthening the lives of our local and global neighbors,” said Charla Schafer, President of the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine. “Sustaining their charitable vision is a privilege that we hold in the highest regard. Dick and Mary Jo’s legacy will continue to have a powerful impact on the causes they were passionate about today and far into the future.”


The Richard H. and Mary Jo Stanley Environment Preservation Support Fund was established to support local, national, or international organizations working to combat climate change, reduce harmful emissions and pollution, support sustainable development, and to preserve and repair natural lands and the environment.


This grant will contribute to The Nature Conservancy’s global priorities—tackling the dual threats of climate change and rapid biodiversity loss—through local work that includes protecting and restoring our lands and waters, reducing and storing carbon through natural climate solutions, promoting regenerative food systems and partnering with Indigenous peoples and local communities.


“The Nature Conservancy is grateful to receive this extraordinary support from the Richard H. and Mary Jo Stanley Environment Preservation Support Fund. The environmental challenges our natural world faces require bold and ambitious strategies paired with bold and ambitious actions like the Stanley Family and the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine have exhibited with this gift to support our efforts to conserve the lands and waters that all life depends on,” said Graham McGaffin, State Director, The Nature Conservancy in Iowa.
