I am looking forward to serving the Fort Wayne community and providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere to everyone who comes to the Community Foundation. I have grown up just outside of Fort Wayne my whole life, so this is home. As a child I remember coming to Fort Wayne for shopping trips, movies with family and friends, and of course enjoying all the amazing food that Fort Wayne has to offer. – Amanda Pant, First Impression Specialist & Philanthropic Services Assistant
