The Glick Fund does not accept grant applications through an open application process. However, selected organizations will be invited to apply.  Questions should be directed to Ryan Brady, Director of Strategic Projects.


Issues The Glick Fund Supports

The Glick Fund is focused on making a measurable impact in specific areas. The Glick Fund concentrates on:

• Increasing educational opportunities
• Promoting arts and creative expression
• Supporting efforts toward self-sufficiency
• Alleviating human suffering and helping those in need

Working with CICF staff, The Glick Fund Advisors proactively seek organizations that align with The Glick Fund impact areas and CICF’s three broader community leadership initiatives of: Family Success & Making Connections; Inspiring Places; and College Readiness – initiatives aimed at making central Indiana one of the best places in the nation to live, work and raise a family.
