The Foundation awards grants and contributions to Indiana-based nonprofit organizations that focus on assisting at-risk youth with a particular emphasis on educational activities or programs. Typically grants are NOT awarded for general operating expenses, capital campaigns, infrastructure improvements or event support. Grants generally do not exceed $10,000 and usually fall within $2,500-$5,000. The over-arching goal is to disperse Foundation funds to as many organizations as possible benefitting as many Indiana youth as possible. The Foundation also has a Fever Cares fund dedicated to organizations providing assistance to females.
