22 Jun New Hope Receives Major Gift
New Hope of Indiana is honored to announce it has received a major gift from the Nicholas H. Noyes, Jr. Memorial Foundation. The Indianapolis-based foundation is giving the nonprofit $30,000 to buy a new, fully accessible van.
New Hope provides community-based residential services throughout Central Indiana and a variety of therapy, day, vocational and transition services to more than 400 individuals with disabilities every year. This gift will remove a significant barrier for the individuals served by New Hope, many of whom use wheelchairs, and provide much-needed access to vital healthcare, meaningful employment, and other community-based opportunities.
“We are incredibly grateful to the Nicholas H. Noyes, Jr. Memorial Foundation for this gift,” said New Hope of Indiana CEO Allison Wharry. “Their support will enable us to safely transport clients of all abilities throughout the community. We rely on generous partners, like the foundation, to do the important work we do each and every day.”
The late Nicholas H. Noyes was the first comptroller of Eli Lilly and Company. In 1951, he and his wife, Marguerite Lilly Noyes, established a charitable foundation in memory of their son, Nicholas Noyes, Jr., who died tragically in 1939 at the age of 28.
For over forty years, New Hope of Indiana has supported individuals and families, encouraging them to live their most independent lives. Through services for individuals with disabilities and advocacy efforts, New Hope of Indiana is making an impact in our communities every day. For more information, visit www.newhopeofindiana.org.
