Legacy Fund, the Hamilton County community foundation and a Central Indiana Community Foundation affiliate, has selected Tom Kilian Jr. (pictured), as its next president. He replaces Terry Anker, who stepped down from his position as Legacy Fund president after a six-year tenure to return to the private sector. Kilian will lead efforts to encourage major gifts and contributions for Hamilton County and spearhead the foundation’s community leadership. He has a diverse, 18-year background in both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, with the last 10 years focused on higher education fundraising and philanthropy. Previously, Kilian served as executive director of the Ivy Tech Community College Foundation where he secured the largest individual gift commitment ($5 million) in Ivy Tech history. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Indiana State University, a master’s degree from Indiana University and an executive certificate from the University of Notre Dame. Kilian is involved in the Council for Advancement, Support of Education and American Society for Quality and serves on the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis board of directors. Shanna Young will also join Legacy Fund as coordinator and assistant to Kilian.
