We Need Your Help

A donation from you can help us better serve the needs of our communities. Here’s how:

We need your help to provide more grants to humanities organizations across the state. Although we were able to provide more than $500,000 in CARES Grants to nonprofit organizations, they’ll need even more support in the years ahead.

We need your help to purchase more books for libraries and schools. Our Advancing Racial Equity Collection Development Grants delivered more than $130,000 in funds to 150 nonprofits with circulating book collections in 60 Indiana counties, but the need for new and diverse books, films and other resources remains strong.

We need your help to engage Hoosiers in innovative programming and thought-provoking conversations. In the spring, our team quickly put together #INSlowMoments, which used the power of film, nature and literature to transport Hoosiers into slow moments of reflection, renewal, refuge, and relaxation just as we were entering quarantine and feeling isolated and scared.

We need your help to tell more Indiana stories onscreen. Our stories deserve to be told, and local filmmakers are itching to unearth them.

The effects of the pandemic and economic collapse will be felt for years to come, and the institutions that serve as the heartbeat of our communities—such as libraries, schools and museums—will need our support.

Will you consider donating today to help us step up for our community in 2021?
