Foellinger Foundation Awards Improvement Grants

Posted: Updated:
FORT WAYNE -

The Fort Wayne-based Foellinger Foundation has awarded nearly $1 million in grants to more than 30 nonprofits throughout Allen County. The grants are part of the foundation's 60th anniversary celebration. 

The organization says the funding will be used for improvement or replacement of current assets, or for the purchase of new assets. The foundation says the recipients were able to successfully demonstrate how the projects that required the funding would make the organization more effective.

"Foellinger Foundation emphasizes effectiveness so nonprofit organizations can better serve our community," said Cheryl Taylor, president of the Foellinger Foundation. "This special grant opportunity better positions nonprofits by addressing needs that are often lower priority than programmatic needs, but are none the less crucial to the organization’s effectiveness."
