Mr. Bob Taylor at the Foellinger Foundation press conference

It was a great day for New Haven, as the Foellinger Foundation held a press conference yesterday.  They announced $1,250,000 in grants to non-profits in Allen County.  In addition to huge grants to the United Way, Arts United, and the Community Foundation of Fort Wayne, we’re going to receive a large donation. The New Haven Community Foundation will receive a $50,000 grant for community development. In addition to that, the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne will match 50% for a total contribution of $75,000! We have big dreams for New Haven and it’s days like this that let us know we’re doing the right thing.

Our goal for this year is to raise $300,000. We’re well over 1/3 of the way there. Every other contribution we receive this year will get a 50% match from the Lilly Endowment fund. We raise $200,000 – they’ll contribute $100,000.

Thanks go out to all our board members and founding members. We’ve only just begun.
