Indiana Economic Development Foundation

Indiana Economic Development Foundation


Leading international corporations. Thriving small businesses. A highly-skilled workforce. World-class communities. Economic development is the catalyst that turns our shared vision of Indiana’s future into a reality. But there is intense competition between the states to attract businesses and investors.

As an independently-funded, 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the IED Foundation brings contributors of any size together to support the IEDC as they demonstrate Indiana’s potential to innovators, business leaders and policy makers around the world.

The Foundation’s fundraising efforts are separate and distinct from the IEDC’s incentive programs, which are funded by the State. The decision by a company to make a donation, or to not make a donation, to the Foundation will be given no consideration whatsoever by the IEDC should that company ever apply for economic incentives.
