Who We Are

Our CoordinatorMfauth
Marilynn Fauth has coordinated our programs and services since 2001.  She has thirty years of experience as a grantwriter, 20 as a proposal reviewer and 16 as an Executive Director of a grassroots nonprofit.  Which means that her answers to your inquiries are based on understanding and having been in your shoes.

Prior to her career in the nonprofit sector Marilynn was an educator; a stay-at-home mom and small business owner.  Each of those endeavors added to the skills she now employs in her work with nonprofits.  Her most prized accomplishment was becoming credentialed as a Grant Professional, or Grant Professional Certified, which validates knowledge of and competency in the grants profession through education, experience, professional development, community involvement, and a psychometrically sound examination.

Marilynn is driven by a passion for the sector, an appreciation of the diversity represented, as well as an entertaining sense of humor.


Our Librarian
Lettie Haver joined the PCNRC as the librarian in 2008.  Her past gigs include serving as a teen librarian at her favorite ACPL branch. Her enthusiasm for serving nonprofits is matched only by her thrill at the reference hunt.

Having grown up in an old Northeast Indiana farmhouse surrounded by corn fields and pastures and after returning from adventures through the mountains and valleys of Arizona, Lettie is a happily home-again Hoosier.

Because of her community work through Get on Board, a two year collaboration with YLNI, Lettie was recently named to Fort Wayne Business Weekly’s 40 Under 40 2013 class. In 2011 she was named one of Northeast Indiana’s top 100 Connectors by Leadership Fort Wayne. She founded NeXtGen Fort Wayne and serves on the board of Bi-County Services, Inc, a service provider for individuals with developmental disabilities.

She’s mom to two lively little girls who make her laugh and newly wed to a yogi who cooks, cleans, and reminds her of the gift of focusing on her breath.
