Our Story

The Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne is a tax-exempt, public grantmaking charity dedicated to improving the lives of everyone in our local community.

The Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne was created by and for the people in Allen County in 1922, and enables anyone with philanthropic interests to support the needs of our community. By bringing together the resources of individuals, families and businesses, we create a permanent source of community capital that can benefit Allen County forever.

As a Community Foundation, we have a deep knowledge and keen understanding of Allen County’s most pressing needs. To address these issues and fund solutions, we bring together local nonprofits, caring donors, and community leaders to contribute both financial resources and innovative ideas that effect lasting change.
