Story 1: Fiscal Sponsorship between ManUp Iowa/Evelyn K. Davis Center and DMACC
In the middle of the 2016 calendar year, ManUp Iowa attained a new fiscal agent by partnering with Evelyn K. Davis Center and Des Moines Area Community College. This collaboration was designed to meet three main goals which include the following: 

- ManUp Iowa is able to accept donations on behalf of the ManUp Iowa Mentoring Program through DMACCs Non Profit 501(c)3. All potential donors need to simply send a check to DMACC with a note that it's for the Program and they will be provided a donor receipt. The address for donations is below: 
Des Moines Area Community College, Business Office-Robin, 2006 S Ankeny Blvd, Ankeny IA 50023-8995

- Evelyn K. Davis will provide the Director of ManUp Iowa with monthly support meetings that are aimed at providing oversight, advice and overall support. 

- ManUp Iowa and Evelyn K. Davis staff have created a gateway between both agencies services so that the cliental served by both organizations may have easier access to its services. Services primarily include the following: EKDs "Summer Youth Employment Program", "Strong African American Families Program", "Men's Clothing Closet", and "ManUp Iowas ManUp Mentoring Program".
