The Ahrens Foundation Corporation was established by Claude W. Ahrens in 1993 as a private foundation to support charitable activities. The board of directors of the foundation did not intend to keep this foundation in perpetuity, thus spending all of its assets through the form of charitable grants and operations. Over $5,500,000 was provided in the form of grants through the Ahrens Foundation Corporation from 1993 to 1998. Today, this foundation is no longer in operation.
