The Glick Fund at the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis (JFGI)
As descendants of some of the earliest Jewish families in Indiana, Eugene and Marilyn Glick established the Glick Fund at the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis in 1982. The Glick Fund supports local organizations, agencies and programs that serve Indianapolis’ Jewish community and strengthen the city’s Jewish cultural life.
Some of the organizations that have benefited from these funds include:
- Jewish Family Services at The Reuben Center
- The Bureau of Jewish Education
- Jewish Community Center (JCC)
- Hooverwood Nursing Home
- Jewish Community Relations Council
Like so many other beneficiaries of the Glicks’ giving, the Jewish Federation benefited from Gene’s extensive building experience, as well as his vision for long-term sustainability. In the late 1990’s, when the Glicks provided the lead gift for renovations of the JCC campus, Gene established a maintenance endowment to support building maintenance for generations to come.
