We are an active voice representing philanthropy and protecting the grantmaking environment. Philanthropy has a unique ability to innovate, incubate, and deliver results. Importantly, philanthropic co-investment and partnership with government leverages our resources to benefit communities around the world.

Contact Marissa Manlove (317.630.5200 ext. 118) or Becky Honeywell (317.630.5200 ext. 111) with questions related to advocacy.

Our advocacy work falls into three areas:

  • Educating members about public policy issues impacting philanthropy and the nonprofit sector
  • Educating policymakers about the important role foundations play in Indiana communities, as stewards of resources for the public good and partners in strengthening and improving quality of life
  • Advocating for public policies that promote the health and vitality of the philanthropic sector
