Capacity Building Grant Opportunity: Foellinger Foundation Transform Grants

Is your organization addressing effectiveness? Do you need a professional, third-party perspective on your organization?

Consider how a Foellinger Foundation Transform grant to build capacity can help.

We don’t want you to miss the following, ongoing opportunity. And, we would also like to point out that regardless of whether you serve children and families, you are likely still eligible if your organization serves in Allen County – based on Foellinger Foundation’s mission to support effective leaders and effective nonprofits in Allen County, Indiana.

As usual, when we share information about grant opportunities, we encourage you to check the information against the funders’ materials as changes may occur after we publish. Thank you!
