Strong partners are needed to make Riverfront Fort Wayne a reality. The Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne has taken a lead role in private fundraising to support riverfront development and the Allen County-Fort Wayne Capital Improvement Board (CIB) is contributing funds for property acquisition.

The City's Parks & Recreation Division is leading the overall Riverfront Fort Wayne effort, with support from Community Development and City Utilities.

Additionally, the Tri-State Watershed Alliance, and numerous other organizations and groups, are supporting events and programming along the downtown riverfront.
