Project Transformation Indiana is pleased to announce that it has received a grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. and a grant through the Joyce Byllesby Trust from the Diversity, Missions, and Justice Ministries of the Indiana United Methodist Conference. The Lilly Endowment grant will help Project Transformation Indiana work with a consultant during the upcoming months to assess the organization’s long-term capacity to continue serving communities in Indianapolis.

Together, these grants will enable Project Transformation Indiana to strengthen and sustain its ability to continue its mission to transform communities by engaging children, college-age young adults, and churches in purposeful relationships. Project Transformation Indiana’s Staff and Board are excited to engage in this work of building up the organization and continuing its mission as we recover from the pandemic and grow towards year-round programming.

About Lilly Endowment Inc.: Lilly Endowment Inc. is an Indianapolis-based private philanthropic foundation created in 1937 by three members of the Lilly family – J.K. Lilly Sr. and sons J.K. Jr. and Eli – through gifts of stock in their pharmaceutical business, Eli Lilly & Company. Although the gifts of stock remain a financial bedrock of the Endowment, it is a separate entity from the company, with a distinct governing board, staff and location. In keeping with the founders’ wishes, the Endowment supports the causes of community developmenteducation and religion and maintains a special commitment to its founders’ hometown, Indianapolis, and home state, Indiana.
