Edward and Ione Auer, Everyday Stars

The Edward D. and Ione Auer Foundation is a private charitable foundation that donates money to other charitable organizations in Fort Wayne and the surrounding areas that was endowed by its namesakes. The Auers' purpose was to have the foundation contribute to general charitable purposes and the completion of projects designed to benefit the Fort Wayne area. The Foundation has given donations to Indiana University – Purdue University Fort Wayne, the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Orchestra, the Allen County Public Library, and the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo. After a donation of $1 million dollars to Arts United, it was announced that the building they had recently purchased would be renamed the “Auer Center for Arts and Culture.”
