INDIANA – The Indiana Land Protection Alliance (ILPA) has received a $50,000 grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust.
“This grant will be used to create strength and resilience within Indiana’s land trust community,” said ILPA’s Board President, Joe Tutterrow. “Together, Indiana land trusts protect over 120,000 acres of our state’s most significant land, water, and cultural resources.”
“The Trust is dedicated to protecting nature, so we are pleased to support Indiana Land Protection Alliance’s continued work of bringing together organizations and individuals across our state to conserve our lands and our natural and cultural resources,” said Trustee Kent Agness, Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust.
“We are extremely grateful,” remarked ILPA’s Executive Director Andrea Huntington. “The Trust’s support will bolster our efforts to accelerate the pace and quality of land protection in Indiana; prioritize open space, equity, and inclusion; build statewide awareness for land trusts and their work preserving Indiana’s natural, cultural, and agricultural heritage systems; strengthen communities of practice among land trusts, and inspire synergy within the greater conservation community.”
Since the Trust began its grant-making in 1998, it has awarded nearly $341 million to 1,004 organizations in its home states of Indiana and Arizona. For more information about the Trust and its programs visit www.ninapulliamtrust.org.
