GIFT VII Consultant Resources

In October 2018, Lilly Endowment Inc. announced GIFT VII, a major new initiative for community foundations. Lilly Endowment has supported the development and growth of Indiana community foundations for over 25 years. 

A significant new element of this initiative is a focus on community leadership.  In 2019, each community foundation will receive at least $50,000 for community leadership planning work. The Endowment is also open to community foundations using some of the grant for internal capacity building in preparation for community leadership work.
