HISTORY OF THE FOUNDATION
EPF has a model and an approach created from 100 years of service provided to the community by college-educated women of color.
Established in 2007, several women in the Indianapolis community got together and formed this foundation to address the funding needs of many programs that improve the quality of life of the citizenry, particularly girls and women of color. This group wanted to create a new culture of philanthropy that would capitalize on the ability to effectively tie the benefits of strategy giving and innovation resource develop It also aimed to limit and eliminate administrative costs associated with fundraising, meetings, and day to day operations to ensure that the resources raised were directed to the programs and services that fulfill the foundation's mission.
EPF is a 501(c) 3 organization incorporated in the state of Indiana.
