Endowment

The endowment was established in order to secure financial stability for the future of Storytelling Arts of Indiana. The endowment is housed at The Central Indiana Community Foundation and is governed by a Board of Directors. In most cases, the directors are past board members of Storytelling Arts of Indiana.

In celebration of Storytelling Arts of Indiana’s 20th birthday, we launched our first endowment campaign, The Story Lives On. To contribute to this campaign, click here.

In addition to cash contributions, the endowment gratefully accepts planned gifts, such as:

  • Bequests of cash or property through a will are easily made and are free of estate taxes.
  • Life insurance can offer an immediate tax deduction in the amount of cash value of the policy when Storytelling Arts is named as the irrevocable beneficiary. In addition, any premiums that you pay thereafter are deductible as charitable gifts.
  • Trusts are life-payment plans that allow donors to make a substantial gift to charity while still providing for their personal needs. Plans include bequests, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, life insurance and retirement plans.
