The IPA Day at the Statehouse is our opportunity each year to advocate for philanthropy—and issues important to philanthropy—with a strong, unified voice. Please join us on February 6, from 8-11 a.m. at the Indiana Statehouse for a reception with IPA members and legislators.
We need to ensure that new members of our legislature, along with their seasoned colleagues, understand the value of philanthropy to our communities, our state, and even our country.
This annual reception does not include a formal program; you may come and go as your schedule allows. Legislators will do the same. However, we will contact legislators from your districts to let them know you’re attending. Additionally, for your conversations, we’ll provide talking points, updates on bills pertinent to philanthropy this session, and information regarding philanthropy’s impact in Indiana.
In addition to inviting your legislators, we've also invited the Governor’s office and leaders from key state agencies, including the Department of Workforce Development, Department of Education, Family and Social Services Administration, Office of the Attorney General, Indiana Commission for Higher Education, Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning, and the Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addiction.
We’ll send details for the day closer to the event. If you have questions, please contact Becky Honeywell, director of membership and external affairs, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 317.630-5200 x. 111.
