What the Lilly Center’s backbone of giving looks like

PRESS RELEASE – The Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams’ tri-fold approach to local lake science―research, education and collaboration―is the result of many generous gifts given over its 13-year history. While every supporter is celebrated for their contribution, the following 14 agencies and organizations have provided the backbone of giving to the Lilly Center.

These supporters have invested substantially in the Lilly Center’s 2019 program and operating funds. They underwrite current and ongoing lake research, K-12 and community education, and collaboration with likeminded groups. The diversity of these 14 organizations represents the Lilly Center’s broad support and far-reaching impact with shared values of cleaner lakes for the future.

“Our team often talks about doing what it does well before adding anything else,” said Dr. Nate Bosch, director of the Lilly Center. “Our supporters make such focused development and growth possible. Thanks to their intentional giving, both financially and with their time, we can serve the community by monitoring the health of our lakes and making the lessons we learn freely available,” he said.
