In 2022, Foellinger Foundation launched the Sonder Fellowship, a leadership training program for BIPOC leaders, by BIPOC leaders, that are living, working or serving in Southeast Fort Wayne. The program combines individual leadership development with asset-based community development (ABCD) to support opportunities that position the southeast quadrant of Fort Wayne to thrive.

One Lucky Guitar partnered with the Foundation to capture a series of videos to tell the stories of the leaders who were transformed by the fellowship experience.
