Funding Opportunity | Strengthening Indianapolis Through Arts and Cultural Innovation

Lilly Endowment, Inc., (LEI) has issued a request for proposals for compelling projects designed to strengthen Indianapolis’s cultural vitality. Strengthening Indianapolis Through Arts and Cultural Innovation is designed to enhance the quality of life in Indianapolis; bolster Indianapolis’ image as a desirable place to live, work, play and visit; and foster a creative, energized and forward-thinking community. As part of Strengthening Indianapolis Through Arts and Cultural Innovation, we encourage organizations to generate creative new ideas that enhance the community’s quality of life and benefit those who live, work and play in Indianapolis. We welcome ideas of all sizes (from $7,500 to $10 million) that meet the parameters outlined in this invitation.

Because all proposals to LEI from Indiana University must be approved by President McRobbie, we will use the Limited Submissions process to accept, review, and select ideas for submission in response to this opportunity. Those interested in applying should carefully review the RfP for details about LEI priorities, interests, and guidelines.

Only one application will be accepted per institution. To apply to IU’s internal competition or to learn more, click here. The deadline for applications is February 23, 2018.
