The vision of Indiana Philanthropy Alliance (IPA) is that Indiana has a collaborative and effective philanthropic sector that makes a positive difference in the lives of people and their communities. We move toward achieving that vision by working to champion, support and connect our members as they transform Indiana through effective philanthropy. In an effort to meet member expectations for relevant data about our sector, IPA has partnered with the Foundation Center to produce this report on Indiana foundation giving that not only provides an overview of the funding landscape in Indiana, but also includes a focused analysis of grantmaking directed toward specific beneficiary groups.
A greater understanding of philanthropy's impact on diverse populations requires reliable research at a state and national level. It is our hope that this report will serve as a shared point of reference among our member foundations, nonprofit organizations and other stakeholders, enabling the conversation about diversity and philanthropy to move forward in a manner that is grounded in concrete data.
