The Fort Wayne Trails Endowment Fund

Help Support The Future of The Fort Wayne Trails Endowment Fund

The Fort Wayne Trails Endowment Fund provides both stability and sustainability for the important trail work being done in our community. Our Endowment Fund provides for future operations, development and trail maintenance activities. These funds are essential for guaranteeing that our trails will continue into the future.

Our Fort Wayne Trails Endowment Fund is held at the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne. The Community Foundation provides a 20% match for all gifts to our Fund up to $10,000. So your donation of $100 provides $120 worth of trail development and maintenance to Fort Wayne Trails. Your gift, plus the match, will be added to our Endowment Fund, to ensure the trails are here for generations to come.

During the month of November, the Community Foundation is also offering a special surprise donation to the local non-profits who receive the most gifts. Fort Wayne Trails received one of these special donations in 2018 and with your help, we can do it again in 2019.

Thank you for donating to trails for our future!


Brewed IN the Fort is Fort Wayne Trail’s largest annual fundraiser. At the 2019 event, we were able to raise $23,000 for trails in Allen County. Like so many things this year, Brewed IN the Fort has been
canceled, but not all is lost. One part of this fun festival that we have been able to take virtual is the auction. Please help us raise money for expanding and connecting trails in Fort Wayne and Allen County
by bidding on some amazing food, fun, and experiences. The items are now available for preview and the bidding will kick off 12 Noon on Wednesday and will end 5 pm Sunday.
