We can’t wait to partner with more fantastic nonprofits who are impacting our city, one kid at a time.” — Katie Townsend, Director of Enterprise Sales at Lessonly

Lessonly, the leader in online training software, today announced another year of giving from the Brighter Indianapolis Fund. Through Brighter Indy, Lessonly awards 1% of its revenues to nonprofit organizations that impact youth in Indianapolis. The company is now accepting applications for prospective grant recipients in 2019.

“A year ago, we started the Brighter Indy Fund to promote healthy living and meaningful learning experiences for children across Indianapolis,” said Katie Townsend, who leads the Brighter Indy Fund and serves as Lessonly’s Director of Enterprise Sales. “We can’t wait to partner with more fantastic nonprofits who are impacting our city, one kid at a time.”

The nonprofits and those they serve aren’t the only ones impacted by the Brighter Indy Fund—Lessonly employees volunteer quarterly with the partner organizations. “The opportunity to be hands-on with Big Green and their Learning Gardens has been incredible,” Lessonly’s Director of Sales, Justin Clifford, said about his time with Big Green, a nonprofit encouraging youth wellness through healthy eating.

In 2018, the Brighter Indianapolis Fund issued grants to four organizations working with youth in Indianapolis:

  • Big Green is building a national school food culture that promotes youth wellness by connecting kids to real food through a network of Learning Gardens and a food literacy program.
  • Girls Inc. delivers life-changing programs and experiences that equip girls to overcome serious barriers to grow up strong, smart, and bold.
  • Hope for Tomorrow builds bridges between the Burmese and American communities through education and service.
  • Young Actors Theatre creates theatrical opportunities that instill confidence, creativity, and discipline in youth.

The Brighter Indy Fund is looking to make four grants in 2019, and welcomes applications from any nonprofit organization improving the lives of kids in Indianapolis. Applications are due January 11th, 2019. Interested organizations can learn more and apply at http://www.lessonly.com/brighter-indy.
