In 1916, a group of civic and business leaders founded the Indianapolis Foundation. It was a revolutionary idea, providing visionary philanthropists a new way to invest in good works for their city.
In 1991, the Foundation merged with The Legacy Fund of Hamilton County to form the Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF). With more than $700 million under management, CICF continues to work to make Central Indiana a better, more vibrant, more beautiful place.
But we can’t do it alone. That’s why we’re calling on you to Be IN. Be INformed. Be INvolved. Be INspired.
