The Foellinger Foundation awards 90% of its grant dollars to Allen County-based nonprofit organizations that serve Allen County children and their families, particularly those with the greatest need and least economic opportunity.

The Foundation does this by identifying and funding mission-driven, well-governed, results-oriented organizations that promote self-reliance and build community.

The Foundation awards grants to eligible Allen County-based nonprofit organizations that are exempt from paying federal taxes under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and that are not private foundations.
