Community Impact Fund Giving Campaign

Every day is your chance to make this community a little bit better.

You’re a change-maker.

You believe in our community and you want to help make it better.

We get it. We’re with you.

As a Community Foundation we spend every day working to improve the lives of everyone in Allen County, and our true brilliance and success lies in our ability to leverage the giving of many to make the greatest possible impact.
