Central Indiana Senior Fund

The mission of the Central Indiana Senior Fund is to support programs and opportunities for low-to-moderate income older adults in Central Indiana, with a focus on under-served or isolated populations

Since its inception in 2005, the Central Indiana Senior Fund has awarded more than $7.6 million to senior focused not-for-profits and programs in Central Indiana. The fund not only provides responsive grant-making support, but also endeavors to be strategic and proactive in their funding by identifying and addressing the unique needs of, and opportunities for, the aging population.

The Central Indiana Senior Fund continues a passion to assure that the elderly in our community have the basics of life and live the last chapters of their lives with a sense of dignity and worth.

Giving Areas

The fund has identified four main impact areas for their giving:

  1. Basic needs
  2. Health & wellness
  3. Living environment of choice
  4. Life-affirming opportunities
