In the education division, we strive to help enhance and increase educational attainment and meaningful economic opportunities for the people of Indiana and build the state’s intellectual capital. Additionally, we support on an invitational basis higher education access and success for African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans across the United States. We also support youth programs in Indiana that help young people reach their full potential.

Lilly Endowment’s Youth Program Resilience Fund (YRPF) is making nearly $25 million available to 297 youth-serving organizations working in 57 counties across every region of Indiana to help address some of the many challenges they face because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Youth-serving organizations supported through YRPF are receiving grants that range from $5,000 to $800,000. Many of these organizations provide afterschool programs and fall break, spring break and summer programs that foster positive youth development and offer critical support to working families. Others provide academic enrichment, sports programs, recreational camps and programs that provide social and emotional support, such as mental health and wellness services, and promote child welfare and safety and homelessness prevention.
