Thank you for visiting the Samerian Foundation website. As we continue to navigate the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Samerian Foundation has decided to put all grant funding temporarily on hold.
The Samerian Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for residents of Central Indiana and beyond. We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic will impact nonprofits in many ways. The board feels that we cannot commit to grants until we have a greater awareness of the depth of scale of the long-term ramifications of the outbreak.
As the financial market volatility eases and starts to stabilize, we will reopen the grant portal. We will not be able to prioritize organizations that have lost revenue or are likely to lose future revenue due to canceled events or programs, or larger public institutions that are strained by increased demand for services.
As the crisis and long-term impacts continue to unfold, we will have a better vision of where to focus our resources, based on community need. Please continue to visit our website for updates.
