2018 Special Grant Opportunity

Foellinger Foundation has announced a special grant opportunity in 2018 for any Allen County-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides direct charitable services to apply for limited asset improvement project funds. This special grant opportunity is for the improvement or replacement of current assets or for the purchase of new assets. Foellinger Foundation has dedicated $1 million dollars for this grant opportunity.

Foellinger Foundation was founded on driving principles of integrity, accountability, responsibility and results. Our grantmaking strategy is built around selecting and strengthening effective organizations led by adaptive leaders. Our work is rooted in the belief that being an effective foundation requires us to award grants in a manner that makes a tangible difference to the grant recipient, while remaining faithful to the intent of our donors.  More specifically, we are interested in supporting those organizations that are mission-driven, well-governed and results-oriented.

The key to this special grant opportunity is effectiveness. Organizations applying for these funds must demonstrate how the project for which funds are sought will make the organization more effective.

To be eligible to apply for a limited asset improvement and replacement grant, in addition to being an Allen County 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, an organization must be five years old and provide direct charitable services. Any nonprofit organization that meets these eligibility requirements may apply for up to $50,000.

Due to the volume of applications anticipated, incomplete applications will not be considered.
