Through March 31, 2016, Indianapolis-based Lilly Endowment Inc. is offering a $1 for $1 challenge match up to $1 million for La Porte County to build “Community Funds”. These are specific funds at Unity, opened by visionary people making “unrestricted” gifts. Power for Good grants come from these earnings. Ninety nine grant applications were received in the areas of human services, youth development, education & literacy, arts & culture, animal care, etc. The grants are evaluated by a committee of dedicated members from throughout La Porte County. The support is possible due to the generosity of visionary donors who left unrestricted funds to Unity. Those initial community funders included: John P. and Anne H. Daley, Ernest and Mildred Delco, Charles T. and Pauline Dye, Nancy L. Gorman, Ruth W. Pollingue, Phillip A. Sprague, and John & Jean Vail.
