Lilly Endowment is giving $6.6 million to support a new fundraising campaign by Indiana University's Public Policy Institute.

The gift was made to the IU Foundation to support the institute, which is part of the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at IUPUI.

“This generous funding is a vote of confidence in the institute’s ability to continue its good work in the future, which Lilly Endowment has supported for 20 years,” institute director John Krauss said in a prepared statement.

Krauss said the institute will use the grant to start a campaign "to sustain PPI for years to come." He did not state a fundraising goal.

“Lilly Endowment is pleased to support the efforts of PPI and its centers to provide solid research and analysis on important issues facing Indiana policymakers,” Clay Robbins, president of the endowment, said in a prepared statement.

In 2007, the institute staffed the Indiana Commission on Local Government Reform, which issued the report, “Streamlining Local Government: we’ve got to stop governing like this,” also known as the Kernan-Shepard report.
