This week, the Lilly Endowment awarded $34 million in grants to eight organizations to help strengthen their long-term financial sustainability plans.

Lilly Endowment Inc. is a private philanthropic foundation based in Indianapolis that was started in 1937.

The grants are not intended to fund ongoing operating support, which organizations must have to meet the day-to-day needs of the people they serve.

All the organizations that were awarded grants are based in Indianapolis. The recipients and the amounts received are:
