Lilly Endowment funding opportunity - Strengthening Youth Programs

Updated: Feb 10

On Tuesday, February 14, 2023 and Tuesday, February 21, 2023, Indiana Youth Institute, in partnership with Lilly Endowment, is hosting a general overview of the Strengthening Youth Programs in Indiana (SYPI) Request for Proposal (RFP). This is a free event, open to all youth-serving organizations interested in learning more about the opportunity. The hour-long session will include time for Q&A and information about upcoming in-person trainings to further support completing your SYPI application.

Strengthening Youth Programs in Indiana will help advance the academic, physical and social development of Indiana youth. Through SYPI, the Endowment seeks to support and strengthen eligible youth-serving organizations that provide programs and services to youth (ages five through 18) in communities throughout Indiana.

The Endowment will consider applications from Indiana youth-serving organizations seeking SYPI funding in one or more of the following categories:

  • Program grants that help to expand or enhance existing programs for Indiana youth or initiate new programs to serve their emerging needs.

  • Capacity-building grants that strengthen youth-serving organizations’ operations.

  • Capital grants that help youth-serving organizations renovate their physical spaces to provide safe and stimulating environments for youth or help the organization purchase needed equipment.

Visit the Endowment’s SYPI webpage at to stay up to date about information related to this initiative and download copies of this RFP and other supporting resources.
