Indianapolis-based Glick Philanthropies has announced the recipients of nearly $1.4 million in grants to organizations focused on supporting the arts, advancing education, and expanding opportunities for economic mobility.
The organization says it awards grants to tax-exempt organizations serving central Indiana and communities where Gene B. Glick Company real estate properties are located.
Including these grants, Glick Philanthropies distributed more than $3.6 million through its Glick Fund at the Central Indiana Community Foundation in 2022.
“Nonprofit community organizations fill essential gaps in service for members of our community. We cannot excel as a region without well-funded nonprofit organizations,” said Marianne Glick, chair of the Glick Family Foundation. “We selected this round of grantee partners based on their ability to connect and empower community members and we hope others will support their work by advocating for related issues, providing additional funding, and volunteering valuable time.”
