(Indianapolis – January 3, 2023)- The International Center has been awarded a $500,000 grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. to support The Center’s programming and general operations in 2023.
The Lilly Endowment grant is given in two phases: a single installment of $300,000, followed by a match challenge grant of $200,000. Through the challenge grant, Lilly Endowment will match qualified contributions from businesses, non-profit organizations, foundations and individuals up to $200,000 and is meant to inspire and encourage other donors to give to The International Center.
Now in its 50th anniversary year, The International Center remains committed to its mission of serving as a catalyst to inform, convene and connect public, private and civic global objectives in Indiana.
“We are very fortunate to have had Lilly Endowment’s support through many of our fifty years as an organization,” says Martin Baier, president and CEO of The International Center. “This grant will allow us to continue our mission throughout 2023 and beyond.”
