Support for innovation: Members contribute $500 to a collective grant fund. They also commit to using their talents
to support innovative social benefit ideas. They annually use an objective and democratic process to decide how to allocate
$50,000 of financial support, volunteer time and advocacy efforts.
Lunch with Leaders: Giving Sum members sit down with central Indiana’s top business,
government and not-for-profit leaders.
Discussions focus around why that leader gives back to the community and how philanthropy has impacted that leader’s life.
Lunch discussions are held once per month, usually at the place of the leader’s employment.
