INDIANAPOLIS -

The president of the Athenaeum Foundation in Indianapolis has announced plans to resign. Cassie Stockamp, who has led the organization since 2007, will step down in order to pursue philanthropic opportunities throughout the world. 

During her tenure as president, Stockamp led efforts to grow the foundation as well as the Anthenaeum building in downtown Indianapolis by developing a successful fundraising program, creating the organization's signature event, GermanFest, and increasing total building use by 155 percent. She also led the effort to have the building designated as a National Historic Landmark, which took place in 2017.

Stockamp also launched the $1.2 million capital campaign to renovate and update several areas of the historic building.

"Cassie’s impact on the Athenaeum cannot be overstated," said Athenaeum Foundation Board Chair Greg Henneke. "Her leadership guided the organization into a new chapter, marrying the building and foundation’s past mission into modern relevance. Cassie has been a transformational leader and has set the stage for continued success moving forward. We cannot thank her enough for her contributions."

The foundation's board of directors has begun a national search for Stockamp's successor. The foundation says Stockamp will full transition from her roles with the Anthenaeum and various Indianapolis boards this fall.

"When I began my journey with the foundation, my goal was for the community to take pride and ownership of the building and program its spaces, and to also create a sustainable business model for this Indianapolis treasure," said Stockamp. "Reflecting back on the past 11 years, it’s been amazing to see our community truly embrace the Athenaeum and everything it has to offer. The stage is set for the organization to reach even greater heights, and I look forward to helping select the person who will lead the way."

    • #MeToo, Bullying And What We All Can Do Now

      Indeed, it is an interesting time with so much continuing to come out in Hollywood, the media, other industries, and even our state government related to the sexual harassment of women - women who have remained silent for years. Like those women, I too have been harassed in various ways over the course of my career, even in recent years - and yes, even in top leadership roles. The headline about my departure or the email citing that I was moving on never fully told the real story.
