Why the Denver Hutt Legacy Foundation Supports Ben Franklin Funds

The Denver Hutt Legacy Foundation was formed in the weeks after the death of young entrepreneurial leader Denver Hutt to continue her legacy and vision of striving to make Indianapolis an even better city. Denver, who was only 28 when she passed away, never rested on past successes, and instead, always focused on the next great idea that would redefine community, industry, or placemaking.

Last year, CICF forged a new partnership with the Indiana Business Journal’s Forty Under 40 by providing $40,000 in grant money to be designated to local organizations. Together as a class, the Forty Under 40 met with CICF to learn about grantmaking and the impact of philanthropy in Central Indiana. Collectively, the class then chose local not-for-profits to receive the funds.
