About The Indiana Asset Funders Network
Indiana AFN is a regional chapter of grantmakers who invest in opportunities for low- and middle-income individuals and families to build economic well-being. Members include private, public, corporate, and community foundations, public-sector funders, and financial institutions who want to help Hoosiers secure economic stability, for now and for years to come. Indiana AFN connects funders and their peers in the nonprofit, public, and private sectors. Together they share promising programs and smart strategies, gather knowledge to make their grantmaking more effective, and work to increase investments in asset building.
What is Asset Building, anyway?
Asset building is how individuals, families, and communities gather the resources that will move them towards economic well-being, for now and for years to come. Asset building makes prosperity achievable. That’s why funders across sectors are investing in asset-building strategies for greater impact in low- and middle-income communities.
