Established over 60 years ago by businessman and philanthropist Fred K. Conn, the Conn Memorial Foundation seeks to continue the founder's legacy of compassion and giving to those in need in our community. The Foundation focuses on the most vulnerable of our citizens, our children. Mr. Conn believed in lifting people up and providing for basic needs and necessities, but he also believed in investing in the future of individuals through education and the community by building institutions that would serve those individuals. We are proud to continue this rich and caring legacy.
Though it may sound strange, we believe that perhaps the most important thing that the Foundation does is not making grants but rather offering our knowledge and experience to the community, organizations, and individuals in an attempt to grow the capacity of the nonprofit sector. Our investments in training and educating partner agencies' boards and staffs is central to meeting our mission of service. Together we can change the world.
