Triple Your Donation with Lilly Endowment Inc.'s GIFT VIII $2-for-$1 Match!

The Community Foundation has a new matching opportunity to increase its permanently endowed community funds and expand its ability to benefit our three counties. Lilly Endowment Inc., under its GIFT VIII initiative, will contribute $2 for every $1 given to an unrestricted community endowment fund in Clay, Sullivan and Vigo counties! GIFT VIII is a transformative opportunity for our communities and the Community Foundation as it has the potential to increase the unrestricted community endowments by MORE THAN $5 MILLION! This would allow the Community Foundation to provide more and larger grants focusing on community enhancement and improvement.

We need your help to raise the matching funds before December 31, 2025. We hope you will consider contributing to a new or existing unrestricted endowment fund.  Gifts of cash, stock, IRA rollovers and Qualified Charitable Distributions, along with many other types of charitable gifts, can be used to leverage the matching dollars. No matter the size of your gift, GIFT VIII allows you to TRIPLE your gift and its impact!
