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. If I were a developer I would be looking at the Fountain Square and Fletcher Place neighborhoods instead of Broad Ripple. I would avoid the dysfunctional BRVA with all of their headaches. It's like deciding between a Blackberry or an iPhone 5s smartphone. BR is greatly in need of updates. It has become stale and outdated. Whereas Fountain Square, Fletcher Place and Mass Ave have become the "new" Broad Ripples. Every time I see people on the strip in BR on the weekend I want to ask them, "How is it you are not familiar with Fountain Square or Mass Ave? You have choices and you choose BR?" Long vacant storefronts like the old Scholar's Inn Bake House and ZA, both on prominent corners, hurt the village's image. Many business on the strip could use updated facades. Cigarette butt covered sidewalks and graffiti covered walls don't help either. The whole strip just looks like it needs to be power washed. I know there is more to the BRV than the 700-1100 blocks of Broad Ripple Ave, but that is what people see when they think of BR. It will always be a nice place live, but is quickly becoming a not-so-nice place to visit.

  2. I sure hope so and would gladly join a law suit against them. They flat out rob people and their little punk scam artist telephone losers actually enjoy it. I would love to run into one of them some day!!

  3. Biggest scam ever!! Took 307 out of my bank ac count. Never received a single call! They prey on new small business and flat out rob them! Do not sign up with these thieves. I filed a complaint with the ftc. I suggest doing the same ic they robbed you too.

  4. Woohoo! We're #200!!! Absolutely disgusting. Bring on the congestion. Indianapolis NEEDS it.

  5. So Westfield invested about $30M in developing Grand Park and attendance to date is good enough that local hotel can't meet the demand. Carmel invested $180M in the Palladium - which generates zero hotel demand for its casino acts. Which Mayor made the better decision?
