For more than thirty years, Barbara Burt demonstrated outstanding commitment to and leadership of Allen County charitable and philanthropic organizations. To celebrate the contributions Mrs. Burt made to the leadership of nonprofit organizations, both public charities and private philanthropy, the Foellinger Foundation Board of Directors established the Barbara Burt Leadership Development Fund.

The purpose of the Fund is to:

  • Encourage exceptional nonprofit board governance;
  • Support adaptive thinking within nonprofit organizations; and
  • Promote exchanges about best leadership styles and practices within nonprofit organizations.

Board members may use these funds to access or attend conferences, workshops or webinars. Requests must be received no later than 30 days before the start date of a conference or webinar.
