Supporting Community Foundations in Every Indiana County

Giving Indiana Funds for Tomorrow (GIFT) is an initiative of IPA and The Lilly Endowment Inc., which has supported the development of a community foundation in each of Indiana's 92 counties.

  • Quick response via telephone or email on specific questions
  • IPA conferences and educational programs
  • Community Foundation Boot Camps
  • Special conversation workshops (on topics such as scholarships and technology)
  • Regional training for non-CEO staff and board members
  • On-site consulting
