The Community Foundation offers many different grant programs whose goal it is to bring about positive change and impact while making our community the best place to live, work, and play.  The following grant programs provide support to projects and organizations that enhance the lives of residents within Allen County and Northeast Indiana.

With the help of donors, nonprofits and volunteers, the Community Foundation is committed to making lives better in every corner of our community.

Community Foundation grants are as varied as our community. Some are awarded through an open, competitive grant application process, while others reflect an advised fund donor’s recommendation or are part of an estate gift. However, they all have a single goal: improving our community.
