The YMCA of Greater Fort Wayne has received a four-year grant for more than $1 million to manage the Great KIDS Make Great COMMUNITIES program. As a result, the program will now be managed as an independent entity by the YMCA. 

The program has worked with adults who serve youth by providing education and training since 1999.

“The collaboration of these two organizations ensures a lasting impact on the lives of youth in families in Allen County,” said Cheryl Taylor, Foellinger Foundation President. “We are proud to provide this support as one of Foellinger Foundation’s Signature Grants.”

Foellinger Foundation has granted over $11 million in support for the Great KIDS program and YMCA of Greater Fort Wayne since 1980.
