With a donation of $1,000 your support can truly be transformational for an organization or community. In recognition of this level of contribution, you’ll receive membership into the Meredith Nicholson Society, which is named for the Indiana author who built the historic home where Indiana Humanities now resides.

Thank you to The National Bank of Indianapolis for being the presenting sponsor of the Meredith Nicholson Society.
