The notion of community has always been incredibly important to me. For me, I believe we as individuals desire to have a sense of belonging – to feel connected to something bigger than ourselves.
IndyHub has helped me and countless others feel connected to this amazing city. From invites to special events and sneak previews of new venues, IndyHub gives young professionals special access to cool spaces and places. Along with its cultural initiatives such as Passport to the Arts, leadership development programs like the 1828 Project and engaging events like IndyVolved, IndyHub connects young professionals to the city’s nonprofits.

I see IndyHub as an incubator for 20-and 30-somethings who have a passion for all things Indianapolis. IndyHub is building a pipeline of future nonprofit board members and civic leaders. They’re creating advocates for a city that welcomes all and is preparing for the 21st century.
Though my 20-and-30-something days officially came to an end this year, I know I am better connected to Indianapolis because of IndyHub. And that’s why I give to IndyHub.
This past summer, my husband Evert and I hosted the inaugural Big Gay Brunch at IndyHub’s office along College and Mass Ave to benefit the IndyHub Foundation. Just steps away from the start of the Cadillac Barbie Pride Parade, we invited our closest friends to a morning of mimosas, Bloody Marys, Longs donuts, blueberry French toast casserole, and much more. While part of the event was to raise funds for IndyHub, it was also an opportunity for us to introduce our friends to the mission and programs of IndyHub, an organization we’ve grown to love and support.
This upcoming Giving Tuesday, I encourage you to support an organization that supports our city and young talent in such a big way.
Something worth backing
