Lilly Endowment Gives $100M to Local Human Service Agencies

As part of its support for efforts that improve the quality of life in Indianapolis and in Indiana, Lilly Endowment Inc. has announced $100 million in grants to 15 human service organizations to help them enhance their long-term impact by building stronger financial futures.
“These 15 community anchors not only serve the needs of individuals and families by helping them overcome poverty and achieve self-sufficiency, but are also important partners in creating and implementing the goals contained in neighborhood quality of life plans,” said Bill Taft, Executive Director of LISC Indianapolis.
Many of the partners that will benefit from these funds are a part of the LISC-supported Center for Working Families program and Quality of Life Plan neighborhoods. A tremendous thank you to the Lilly Endowment for this significant investment in our communities!
