Eli Lilly and Company Foundation Corporate Challenge Match


During the last twelve months, United Way of Central Indiana has been hard at work executing an impact strategy to improve the quality of life and well-being of our entire six-county region. However, accomplishing these goals wouldn’t be possible without the partnerships and support we receive from the Central Indiana corporate community.


We’re excited to announce an opportunity for any new corporate partner to have their gift to United Way doubled, thanks to the generous support of the Eli Lilly and Company Foundation. From now until November 2, 2020, or until the full $1 million is reached, any new corporate gift to United Way of Central Indiana will be matched dollar-for-dollar!


For more than a century, United Way has been fighting for the education, financial stability, health and basic needs of everyone in Central Indiana. Now more than ever, our community needs you – because more than 270,000 families in Central Indiana are living in, or are one step away, from poverty. United Way has a vision for our community where all children, individuals and families thrive and reach their full potential.



Right now, the needs are staggering.



  • More than one in three Hoosier households cannot afford the basics of housing, food, health care, child care and transportation, despite working hard
  • 38% of the total number of households within our six-county region are living in or are one step away from poverty; approximately 50% of these households represent working families who are still struggling to meet their basic needs
  • Central Indiana has experienced an 80% increase in poverty within the last decade


United Way is the one convener within our community who can successfully rally thousands of donors, volunteers, advocates, nonprofit organizations, government leaders, and corporate partners, to help us work together to drive sustainable, scalable solutions that reduce the number of families struggling to make ends meet in Central Indiana.
