LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Subaru of Indiana Automotive's SIA Foundation is giving grants to 13 Indiana nonprofit organizations from eight counties. $107,012.19 total was awarded in its spring session of grants

Since its establishment in 1997, the SIA Foundation has awarded more than $2 million to fund nonprofit projects across Indiana. Recipients in this round represented Carroll, Cass, Hancock, LaPorte, Marion, Porter, Tippecanoe and White counties.

Sarah May is the Grant Coordinator for the SIA foundation. She said it's important for them to give back to organizations that are different from what SIA is known for.

"The SIA Foundation funds areas of arts and culture, education and health and welfare which is a little different than what SIA, our company, funds so I think it's neat to see a different pool of funding," she said.

The application deadline for this round of grants ended in March, so May said they didn't see coronavirus impacting grant applications yet. But she said they expect it will on the applications coming for the winter, which officially open up on July 1st.

She said they try to make the application process as easy as possible for non profits in need.

"For us to make it as simple as possible and then be able to just present the check and say go at it, it's a really great feeling as we go to these non profits," she said.

Normally SIA holds a ceremony to present the checks to the nonprofits. However this year, they are simply delivering the checks in person in order to keep with social distancing guidelines.
