This annual report features stories about Endowment grants made for the sake of the future. Although it's axiomatic that all grants work prospectively, the grants depicted here will have impact far into the future because they are intently focused on improving the lives of generations to come and strengthening the institutions that will serve them.
The report tells how the Endowment is helping campus ministries support college students across the nation as they imagine lives of purpose and meaning. We also are encouraging young professionals in Indianapolis to explore civic engagement through the charitable and educational programs of the vibrant IndyHub network. And we are helping high school students prepare to become the next generation of skilled workers in advanced manufacturing so they can build prosperous futures here in Indiana.
The Endowment also is concerned about the youngest learners. Through the initiatives of Early Learning Indiana and United Way of Central Indiana, preschool children's lives will be transformed when early learning programs become stronger and more available across the state. Through the Summer Youth Program Fund, low-income elementary students will learn that college is a realistic goal for them.
