When we work together, amazing things happen.

In 2022, the Community Foundation distributed more than $9.9 million and the majority of funds remained right here in Allen County. Those funds supported programs for children and families, education and scholarships, arts and culture, and community engagement and development.

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.
