Building a Better Marion County - since 1916
As Indiana’s oldest and largest community foundation, The Indianapolis Foundation (a CICF affiliate) was created in 1916 to ensure that the quality of life in Marion County continuously improves; to help where the needs are greatest and the benefits to the community are most extensive; and to provide donors a vehicle for using their gifts in the best possible way now, and in the future as conditions in the community change.
Grants will support not-for-profits addressing community-wide issues and needs in Marion County.
Sixteen not-for-profits receive special “early” grant allocation to support 2014 programs focused on summertime jobs and other crime deterrents for youth.
Funds will support summer programs, including arts, career exploration and employment, community service, sports and more.
Community foundation’s website supports creating demand for the arts in central Indiana, features compelling content from professionals and collegiate journalists.
