Leadership Receives Grant from Community Foundation of Southern Indiana

Leadership Southern Indiana is proud to announce that it has been awarded a grant in the amount of $1,000 by the Youth Philanthropy Council of the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana.

This generous grant serves as recognition of the impactful work carried out by Leadership Southern Indiana, particularly through its NEXGEN program. NEXGEN is dedicated to fostering stronger leaders by providing high school juniors with immersive experiences in various community sectors, including government, financial literacy, workforce development, and more. The program culminates in a capstone philanthropic project, further enriching participants’ understanding of community engagement. The recent surge in applications for the Class of 2025, totaling over 90 from students across Clark, Floyd, and Scott Counties, spanning public and private schools as well as homeschooled individuals, underscores the program’s burgeoning influence and its significance in shaping future community leaders.

As a token of appreciation, the Youth Philanthropy Council honored Leadership Southern Indiana at the Grants Award Reception on Wednesday, April 10th. The reception took place at the Prosser Career Education Center located at 4202 Charlestown Rd in New Albany. During the event, the grant check was presented to our organization.

“We are deeply honored to receive this recognition of our organization’s efforts and their investment in our community,” said Mark Eddy, President/CEO of Leadership Southern Indiana. “This support will enable us to continue our mission of cultivating leadership and making a positive impact in our community.” 

Leadership Southern Indiana extends its gratitude to the Youth Philanthropy Council and the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana for their commitment to supporting organizations like ours.
