Indiana Artisan has received a $6,500 grant from Glick Philanthropies to develop an ecommerce site as a way to help artists boost and build their businesses, which have been hit hard by the COVID pandemic. Glick Philanthropies is a family of charitable initiatives, programs and organizations focused on building community and creating opportunity. Together, Glick Philanthropies strives to strengthen the quality of life in central Indiana and in communities where Gene B. Glick Company properties are located to ensure that people in those communities can reach their full potential and lead lives of dignity.

The online site will offer the exceptional home and office décor, handcrafted gifts, small-batch foods, and one-of-a-kind pieces that sell daily in the Indiana Artisan stores in Carmel and French Lick.

“Visitors from around the state and across the nation frequent our stores to support the Hoosier-made work that has been designated Indiana Artisan because it is among the best in the state,” said Rosalyn Demaree, director. “They routinely express interest in having the work more accessible to them. When the pandemic cancelled shows and shut down other opportunities that artists and artisan food producers rely on for their livelihood, Indiana Artisan marshalled its resources to develop the online store in time for holiday sales.

Including this grant, Glick Philanthropies announced $258,500 to organizations in central Indiana focused on arts & creative expression, education, helping those in need, and self-sufficiency.

“A strong community means access to safe, affordable housing, programs to meet the basic needs of our most vulnerable neighbors, and initiatives that deepen our connection through the arts,” said David Barrett, vice chairperson, president and CEO of Glick Family Foundation and president of Glick Housing Foundation. “We’re proud to support these organizations that are building community and creating opportunity for our neighbors.”
