Cultivating knowledge. Creating change.

Nonprofits are the backbone of our community, and the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne helps provide the fortification to keep them healthy and strong!


With education comes knowledge, which leads to stronger, more viable nonprofits. It’s one distinct way we’re giving back to the organizations that give so much to our community.

We offer accessible and affordable workshops to help nonprofits maximize their impact, strengthen their organization, and gain valuable ideas to help safeguard their resources.

Access Powerpoint slides and documents from past presentations.

Upcoming Nonprofit Training Seminars

Maximize your impact.

When you give to the Community Foundation you’re supporting the nonprofits that enrich our community across a range of interests—from basic needs to our natural environment to arts and culture.

Through your support, we’re able to provide area nonprofits with ongoing education and training in best practices. It’s how we all pull together to make the people and places of Allen County even better.
