1st Source Foundation
Grants to Indiana, Michigan, and Florida nonprofit organizations to benefit communities where the funding source has a business presence. Applications are invited from organizations working in the following areas: education; arts and culture; human services and social welfare; and community, civic, and neighborhood involvement.
The 1st Source Foundation was established to enhance and to strengthen the social, economic and cultural fabric of the communities served by 1st Source banking centers.
In order to make the most productive, efficient and effective use of its resources, the Foundation looks for organizations that reach large segments of the 1st Source community. The Foundation is a strong believer in the United Way concept, seeking whenever possible to partner with private and public entities to maximize the collective impact of its efforts.
To that end also, 1st Source Foundation works in concert with 1st Source Bank to ensure that the widest possible needs are being met through their collective contributions, sponsorships and support programs.
The Foundation’s preference is to partner with organizations that have proven themselves successful in achieving their mission, rather than funding new organizations. Special consideration is given to those nonprofit, charitable and community organizations in which 1st Source colleagues play an active role.
