In recent years, the Claude W. and Dolly Ahrens Foundation has made changes to its charitable grant funding process. At this time, the foundation is no longer accepting grant funding requests or grant solicitations of any kind. The foundation has chosen to actively seek projects and organizations to which it chooses to fund.

The Claude W. and Dolly Ahrens Foundation will continue to support and prioritize projects in the fields of parks & recreation, education, and health. The foundation has shifted its funding focus primarily to projects that impact the Grinnell, IA community.
