money cash bills dollarsNorthwest Iowa — This is the time of year when nonprofit organizations ramp up efforts to get in touch with donors.

Kari McCann of the Iowa Counsel of Foundations says a lot of Iowans like to donate around the holidays — and many are motivated by more than just the good feeling they get by giving to others.
