LSSI receives grant from the Foellinger Foundation

Lutheran Social Services of Indiana (LSSI) has received a $705,000 grant from the Foellinger Foundation.

This grant is part of a special initiative of the Foundation which provides operating, limited capital improvement and replacement, and special organizational effectiveness support.

“We greatly appreciate our relationship with the Foellinger Foundation,” says LSSI President and CEO Angie Moellering. “This award will have a significant impact on our organization and the families we serve. The last three years of Foellinger support has helped us develop our governance structure, enhanced our fundraising, grown our programs to families in need, and enabled us to develop an ongoing strategic planning and evaluation process.”

The Foellinger Foundation Inc. is a private, charitable foundation that awards grants for the benefit of people in Fort Wayne and Allen County. The Foundation was created in 1958 by Helene R. Foellinger, The News-Sentinel’s publisher from 1938 to 1980, and Esther A. Foellinger, her mother.
