INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Lilly Endowment has awarded $1 million to the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis to boost security at its campus and make other improvements.

The money will be used for security improvements, upgrading computers and furthering two initiatives aimed at boosting the local community’s engagement with the federation’s campus on Indianapolis’ north side.

The Federation and its five agencies provide programs and services to about 2,000 people, both Jewish and non-Jewish, every day.

CEO Debra Barton Grant says the federation is honored by the Lilly Endowment’s generosity and is “grateful for this transformational gift.”

She says the federation and the Jewish community it represents “have a time-honored heritage of supporting the greater Indianapolis community and providing needed programs and services to people of all backgrounds and religious affiliations.”
