Lilly Endowment Inc. has just announced a generous matching opportunity for gifts to Community Foundations. This exciting opportunity will allow donors to triple their gifts to unrestricted, otherwise known as community granting funds. For example, a gift of $100 will generate a $200 match from the Endowment. This may be the perfect opportunity to create a family legacy with a named fund that will support your LOCAL community forever!
These funds have supported impactful projects in the past such as the Shelby County Library Plaza, the greenhouse at Southwestern High School, the new parks in Fairland and Flat Rock, the walking trail at Morristown Community Park, the Back Sacks program for elementary age children, and more.
During GIFT VI, a Lilly Endowment Inc. Match Opportunity in 2014-2016, several new funds were created when family members joined together to create a fund in their family’s name. The Endowment matched their gift then, and now this opportunity can help them grow their funds through the 2:1 match once again! These funds have helped provide arts programming in the schools, fight hunger in our community, help expectant mothers quit smoking, and so much more.
Contact us to find out how you can triple your gift or go to our website to learn more. Join us in making a (bigger) difference for Shelby County.
Interested in making a gift for this opportunity today? Please submit a check to BRCF and notate GIFT VII in the memo line or select the DONATE button on the homepage.
