Our People

Northeast Indiana Fund

The Northeast Indiana Fund strengthens our region’s capacity and economic competitiveness through sustained leadership, collaboration, transformative initiatives, and alignment of resources to help us reach our shared goals.

This 501(c)(3) was incorporated on July 18, 2005, to support Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership’s mission to build, market, and sell Northeast Indiana. The work of the Northeast Indiana Fund board ensures that we have the funding, support, and vision needed to make positive, progressive changes to grow the region.

NIF Directors

Northeast Indiana Fund board members are elected by the Regional Partnership’s Governing Board to serve three-year terms.
