Indianapolis-based nonprofit Glick Philanthropies is awarding nearly $700,000 in grant funding to 90 organizations in 11 states. Fourteen Indianapolis-based organizations are among the recipients, set to receive funding through the Glick Community Relief Fund.
The relief fund is used to support organizations that promote food access, transportation, and emergency shelter, among other services. Glick says food access was elevated as the area with the greatest need this year.
“Nonprofit organizations ensuring access to basic needs are the backbone of our communities, particularly as we continue to feel the effects of the pandemic and rising inflation,” said Ben Grande, director of philanthropy for Glick Philanthropies. “Through the Community Relief Fund, we’re proud to do our part by supporting 90 organizations that are making a difference in the lives of individuals and families.”
The Indy-based organizations receiving funding are listed below:
- Bethel Family Worship Center
- Crooked Creek Food Pantry
- Damien Center
- Eagle Creek Church of Christ – Joseph Plan Pantry
- Health & Hospital Corp. of Marion County
- Indy Hunger Network
- Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis – Jewish Family Services
- Lakeview Church
- Martindale Brightwood CDC
- One Heart Indiana at Sagamore Institute
- Purdue Extension – Marion County
- Soul Food Project
- St. Vincent de Paul Indianapolis
- Salvation Army Eagle Creek Corps Community Center
“Access to food is a basic need that many adults and kids in our community struggle to meet,” said Julie Sondhelm, clinical director at Jewish Family Services. “With high inflation, food pantries across the country are seeing increased demand and this grant from Glick Philanthropies helps to support community members so they don’t have to choose between paying their rent or buying groceries.”
