LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Twelve Indiana nonprofit organizations will be able to give back to the community with a little help from the SIA Foundation.

The SIA Foundation awarded over 90 thousand dollars to the nonprofit organizations today at their Winter Grants Award Ceremony. The organizations awarded represented Dearborn, Lake, Marion, Porter, Putnam, and Tippecanoe counties.

The foundation awards these grants to organizations that give to the community, and foundation president, Tom Easterday, spoke about the selection of this cycle’s recipients.

“We looked in areas particularly for health and welfare, education, and then the arts, and we try to get a few organizations from each of those categories, but this year especially we looked at organizations that can really make a positive impact immediately.”

Easterday also said that over 136 organizations applied for the grant this cycle.

The Harrison High School Visual Arts department was one of the grant recipients, with plans to use the new funds to purchase digital camera for students to use in the Photography classes.

Teacher, Jennifer Tordil, spoke about how grateful she is for the grant.

“It's really special that they see a need and a focus for public education and to support us in this way by buying us some equipment.”
The next SIA foundation grant application session will begin on January first and will close at the end of March.
