Grant Funding Support

As a non-profit organization, the YMCA of Greater Fort Wayne relies on the generosity of
donors and grant funders to continue carrying out our mission through programs and facilities. 

Thank you to our most recent grant funders:

The Dekko Foundation  
Assuring the consistency that young children need to learn, grow and thrive is the purpose of a $60,000 grant for the Whitley County Family YMCA’s Armstrong Early Learning Center. The grant will be used to increase the number of classrooms implementing principle-based learning of order, self-reliance and intentional interactions. 

The Ian and Mimi Rolland Foundation
Nurturing the potential of at-risk youth is the purpose of a $1,000 grant. Funding will support teen programming at the Renaissance Pointe YMCA, featuring activities focused on academics, leadership, job and career readiness, arts and culture, teamwork and character building.

The Waterfield Foundation
Enabling youth from low-income families to participate in resident camp at YMCA Camp Potawotami and enriching programs at the Renaissance Pointe YMCA is the purpose of a $4,000 grant. 

YMCA of USA
Providing first-time camp experiences to youth in need is the purpose of a $6,250 Resident Camp Access grant. Youth will participate in one week of resident camp at YMCA Camp Potawotami, building new skills and making new friends. Improving YMCA Camp Potawotami’s capital fundraising capability is the reason for our selection as a member of the 2019 Resident Camp Capital Fundraising Cohort. We will participate in monthly online learning sessions and receive one-to-one consulting with Donor By Design.
