2019 Special Grant Opportunity

Foellinger Foundation has announced a special grant opportunity for Allen County-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides direct charitable services and have been a 501(c)(3) for a minimum of five consecutive years 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. Nonprofit organizations that meet these eligibility requirements may apply for up to $25,000. The Foundation has allocated $500,000 for this grant opportunity. Organizations applying for these funds must demonstrate how the project(s) for which funds are sought will make the agency more effective.

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.
