Support Foundation (NIF)

In Northeast Indiana, we are serious about preserving our rich heritage and legacy, without losing sight of what’s next. We are building a region that’s bigger and bolder, and this cannot be done without the support of the Northeast Indiana Fund.

The Northeast Indiana Fund strengthens the capacity and economic competitiveness of our region 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 change to grow the region.
