“We continue to praise God for the generosity of our community which enables us to come alongside our neighbors in these critical ways,” said Major Rachel Stouder, Indianapolis Area Commander. “With funding like this, we can continue to offer support such as spiritual, social, and emotional support which we know are all very important. However, practical, physical, basic needs are foundational to the stability of individuals and families, the importance of which cannot be overstated.”  

2022 marks the seventh year that Glick Philanthropies has administered its property-nominated grant program. Through this initiative, over $3.5 million has been awarded to roughly 225 organizations in communities where Gene B. Glick Company properties are located.
