The Family & Friends Fund for Southeast Fort Wayne is a donor advised fund hosted at the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne. The fund has been designed to distribute power and financial resources to leaders and residents in Southeast Fort Wayne -- the most under-invested quadrant of our city.

The fund aims to raise $1,000,000 to be directed into economic opportunities in SE that will build generational wealth and connectivity. No funding decisions will be made by anyone other than residents and leaders in SE. BIPOC led businesses and nonprofits will be prioritized.
