Keystone Society
Civic education depends on each of us contributing not just time but private donations to ensure teachers and students have the resources they need. You can ensure that students learn about the U.S. Constitution and the American judicial process. You can also help Hoosiers who cannot afford a private attorney find fairness and representation through a local legal aid nonprofit.

Consider how you can help both civic education and civil legal aid programs in Indiana through the Keystone Society. Members receive statewide recognitionand those who give by December 2 will receive additional acknowledgement at the Foundation's annual dinner.
