The Foellinger Foundation awards grants to nonprofit organizations that strengthen Allen County children and their families, particularly those children and families with the greatest economic need and the least opportunity. By doing so, the Foundation hopes to help Allen County residents increase their self-reliance by moving from dependence to independence, to helping build community through recognition of their interdependence. The Foundation is devoted to fulfilling the charitable intentions of the donors, Helene R. Foellinger and Esther A. Foellinger, her mother. Everything we do is driven by our donors’ wishes for the Foundation they created.
The Get on Board project has trained emerging leaders as board members. Since 2011, more than 160 emerging leaders have participated. Why not invite an emerging leader to serve on one of your committees?
