Summer Youth
Program Fund

The Summer Youth Program Fund (SYPF) supports summer programs serving Marion County youth. A funding collaborative, it makes the grant process easier for charitable organizations by using a single application form. It provides grants, coordinates professional development opportunities, and distributes community information.

The Indianapolis Foundation (a CICF affiliate) and Lilly Endowment Inc. manage SYPF grantmaking and other activities. Since 1995, SYPF has awarded over $23.3 million in grants to summer programs. SYPF has evolved from providing mainly emergency assistance to also support quality daily, enhancement, residential, and youth employment programs.
