The Foellinger Foundation awards 90% of its grant dollars to Allen County, Indiana, nonprofit organizations that serve 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 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.
