- Our workforce: Our funding supports the development of a more educated and competitive future workforce.
The History of TechPoint Foundation for Youth
As Indiana entered the 21st century, a small group of technology entrepreneurs identified an emerging issue: many young Hoosiers lacked the opportunity to develop the technology and thinking skills required to succeed in life. These entrepreneurs formed the TechPoint Foundation for Youth (formerly TechPoint Foundation) in 2001 as vehicle to effect change.
TechPoint Foundation for Youth began as the philanthropic initiative of TechPoint, Indiana’s premier program for growing a thriving technology-based economy. As a supporting organization of CICF since 2001, our partnership with CICF has provided operational assistance, such as administrative, financial, and human resources support.
