We are deeply committed to being good neighbors and supporting our communities throughout central and northeast Indiana by investing our time and money with volunteer help and financial aid. As a financial supporter, we assist hundreds of non-profit organizations and we are especially focused on giving in three areas - Arts, Education and Economic Development.
