Congratulations to Our 2015 $100,000 Grant Recipient, Indianapolis Parks Foundation!
Impact 100 Greater Indianapolis has awarded $100,000 to Indianapolis Parks Foundation during a live vote at our June 9, 2015 annual dinner. The winner was announced following presentations by each of the five finalists and a live vote by Impact 100 members.
Indianapolis Parks Foundation will use the $100,000 grant to expand the Indy Urban Acres (IUA) Flower Farm. Sustaining Indy Urban Acres’ operations is critical to change the face of hunger in our city. The mission-driven eight-acre organic farm provides fresh fruits and vegetables to 80,000 people on Indianapolis’s east side who use food pantries to help feed their families. The Impact 100 grant enables the Indianapolis Parks Foundation to expand IUA’s revenue-generating Flower Farm to two acres, and increase farm food output by 30%—to 40,000 pounds per year.
