FORT WAYNE, Indiana (WANE) – As part of Giving Tuesday, the Do it Best Foundation donated $100,000 to Neighborhood Health as part of a philanthropic initiative.
The Big Give initiative aims to make a positive impact in Northeast Indiana by providing a charitable grant each year to a nonprofit in the area.
In addition to the $100,000 award, The Big Give will award an additional $50,000 in matching funds if Neighborhood Health can match the amount.
“Neighborhood Health is making a huge impact in Fort Wayne and Northeast Indiana because of the organization’s focus on community health,” said Rich Lynch, president of the Do it Best Foundation.
The organization recently acquired the Ward Building at 3501 Warsaw St. and shared a vision of a community health center that will provide numerous health services in south Fort Wayne.
“The need is great, particularly in southeast Fort Wayne, and their plan to address child mortality, among other critical areas of healthcare, aligns perfectly with the Foundation’s goals,” said Lynch.
Neighborhood Health launched a crowdfunding campaign to reach the $50,000 goal.
“In the world of nonprofit organizations, every penny counts when it comes to fulfilling its mission,” said Angie Zaegel, President and CEO of Neighborhood Health.
