Lilly Endowment Gives $50-Million for Indiana Flood Relief

The Lilly Endowment, one of the largest foundations in the country, has awarded $50-million in grants to three organizations for flood relief in Indiana, the grant maker said in a press release.

The Indiana Association of United Ways will receive $45-million for a disaster-response fund that it will administer and dispense to applicant organizations. The American Red Cross and the Salvation Army will each receive $2.5-million to help people and communities with urgent needs and to refill their disaster-relief funds. The Red Cross had said last week that it had run out of money in its relief fund.
