Elevate Indianapolis, along with four other poverty-fighting organizations are awarded $130,000 in grants by the Faith & Action Project.
This year, we were honored to be chosen as one of the grant recipients of the Faith & Action Project at Christian Theological Seminary. They awarded grants totaling over $130,000 in 2021 to five different organizations whose efforts are focused on breaking the cycle of poverty in Indianapolis. Funds received from this grant will allow us to help leverage our partnerships with Indianapolis Public Schools, Shepherd Community Center, Saint Joseph’s College and The Creek. We will also be able to allocate some of those funds to our program activities including college search and application processes, vision trips and career fairs, as well as soft-skills development.
We would like to thank the Faith & Action Project, and we would also like to congratulate the other award recipients: Brookside Community Development Corporation, Outreach, You Yes You, and Lutheran Child and Family Services – Pando Aspen Grove.
