The Hoosier Environmental Council, through its affiliated foundation, said today that it had received the largest grant in its 25-year history.
The McKinney Family Foundation donated $200,000 to support renewable energy, sustainable agriculture and transportation alternatives at the state and local level.
The foundation, chaired by former First Indiana Bank CEO Bob McKinney, also said it would match any donations given to the council in the next two years.
Marni McKinney, the daughter of Bob Kinney and president of the McKinney Family Foundation, said the money will help the council expand throughout the state.
“Hoosiers need a statewide organization to bring all interested parties to the table in solving our environmental challenges,” she said.
