The Northeast Indiana Base Community Council is a nonprofit “member” organization with a 501c3 Military Support Fund established through the Greater Fort Wayne Community Foundation. The fund provides grants to Military Members who live or serve in the eleven county area of Northeast Indiana, and their families during times of unexpected financial hardship. Taking care of the Service Member and his/her family allows the Service Member to focus on the mission. In addition to our Military Support Fund, we execute on our mission with other programs and activities related to workforce development, education, advocacy, and quality of life.
