Designated & Endowed Gifts

The Advancement Center accepts designated gifts that support activities and programs approved by the accepting school administration. Many of those designated gifts support endowed funds, which are are held at Central Indiana Community Foundation and gifts are administered to the local schools or activity organizations, not by the Advancement Center. These funds are often in addition to grants and program support from the Advancement Center.

The average amount of annual designated gifts is over $100,000. If you identify a need in one of our schools, let’s talk about the opportunity to make a difference for the children in that school. Call us in the AC office at 317-845-9400 for more information.
