At the Community Foundation we are dedicated to supporting nonprofits through grants and sustainability. We partner with donors to help make their philanthropic giving impactful. We are also committed to supporting initiatives in Allen County that promote growth and prosperity for all. 2019 was an exciting year for the community Foundation as we engaged more donors, created more funds, and had an even bigger impact in Allen County than we did the year before.
