Grant and in-kind assistance to Central Indiana nonprofit organizations to support special projects and general operations. Program areas include arts and culture, humanities, civic and community development, education, environment, and health and human services. Priority is given to proposals that meaningfully and creatively engage Giving Sum members in innovative, high-impact initiatives.
Giving Sum grants 100% of each year’s membership contributions to a not-for-profit organization in Indianapolis working towards change, innovation, and community good. Members commit to combining personal resources with other members’ resources in order to create greater social impact. The three components of the Giving Sum equation that members offer to the community are:
- Time: Members can serve as high-impact volunteers.
- Voice: Members can use their collective voice to advocate for a cause or mission.
- Money: Each member contributes up to $317 toward a pooled grant fund that is distributed annually.

The final grant amount will depend on 2019 membership contributions. Giving Sum awarded a $15,000 grant in 2018 and anticipates providing a similar level of funding in 2019.
Grant funds will be distributed after June 1, 2019. All grant funds from Giving Sum should be spent in 2019.
