The Barlow Family Foundation was established to continue the personal philanthropy of Robert W. and Jerene Barlow, which they practiced in the Iowa Falls area during their lifetimes. It is run as the philanthropic arm of the Iowa Falls State Bank, which the Barlow family still owns today.  Bob and Jerene's generous contributions have made a difference, especially in the lives of children, and, in their memory, we want to fulfill their desire to fund special projects. The BFF has provided over $2 million to community projects since its creation in 2001.

Dream Big

We offer two rounds of grant applications a year, one for regular grants and one for the Community Challenge, a matching funds project.
