The Glick Fund has doled out more than $2.5 million in new grants to 37 Indianapolis-area organizations, the Central Indiana Community Foundation, which manages the fund, announced Wednesday.

Awards ranged from $5,000 to $325,000 and will pay for programs and services in arts, education, human needs, self-sufficiency and job training.

The donations are part of a new direction the Glick Fund set in 2010 for its charitable efforts. Philanthropists Eugene and Marilyn Glick changed their strategy to focus more on services rather than building projects, an area that received $62 million in grants from the couple and their foundations late last decade. Marilyn Glick died earlier this year.

The largest single award from the most recent round of Glick grants was $325,000 to Providence Christo Rey High School. The private, college-preparatory school west of downtown Indianapolis will use the money to pay for scholarships for low-income students and transportation to work-study programs.

The Glick Fund has given out more than $45 million since it was founded in 1998.

  1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the problem...you will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
