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. The $104K to CRC would go toward debts service on $486M of existing debt they already have from other things outside this project. Keystone buys the bonds for 3.8M from CRC, and CRC in turn pays for the parking and site work, and some time later CRC buys them back (with interest) from the projected annual property tax revenue from the entire TIF district (est. $415K / yr. from just this property, plus more from all the other property in the TIF district), which in theory would be about a 10-year term, give-or-take. CRC is basically betting on the future, that property values will increase, driving up the tax revenue to the limit of the annual increase cap on commercial property (I think that's 3%). It should be noted that Keystone can't print money (unlike the Federal Treasury) so commercial property tax can only come from consumers, in this case the apartment renters and consumers of the goods and services offered by the ground floor retailers, and employees in the form of lower non-mandatory compensation items, such as bonuses, benefits, 401K match, etc.

  2. $3B would hurt Lilly's bottom line if there were no insurance or Indemnity Agreement, but there is no way that large an award will be upheld on appeal. What's surprising is that the trial judge refused to reduce it. She must have thought there was evidence of a flagrant, unconscionable coverup and wanted to send a message.

  3. As a self-employed individual, I always saw outrageous price increases every year in a health insurance plan with preexisting condition costs -- something most employed groups never had to worry about. With spouse, I saw ALL Indiana "free market answer" plans' premiums raise 25%-45% each year.

  4. It's not who you chose to build it's how they build it. Architects and engineers decide how and what to use to build. builders just do the work. Architects & engineers still think the tarp over the escalators out at airport will hold for third time when it snows, ice storms.
