Announcing Our 2023 Change Maker!
Meet our 2023 Change Maker Unconditional Indy. Our $100,000 grant will fund “Expanding Bridges” – a holistic housing assistance program for women who have transitioned out of sex work and the adult entertainment industries. We can’t wait to see al of the amazing ways Unconditional Indy will continue to grow and impact so many women in our community over the next year.
These four nonprofits each received an unrestricted Impact 100 Community Support Grant of $13,000:
- Arts, Culture & Preservation: Indiana Artisan: Emerging Artisan Program
- Education: Freewheelin’ Community Bikes: Changing Tires Changing Lives
- Environment & Animal Welfare: Community Alliance for the Far Eastside (CAFE): Community Orchard and Greenspace
- Health & Wellness: Step-Up, Inc.: Mobile Prevention Services
Impact 100 has been an important part of the Indianapolis community since 2006, along with our annual goal of delivering more than $100,000 to nonprofits in the Greater Indianapolis community. Through our grants we have proven that collective giving works, and that a group of inspired women can accomplish much more than any one of us can alone.
