Give to NIIC,
Give Back to the Community.

Donate to the NIIC.

When you give to The NIIC, you’re providing the essential funding to sustain the growth and development of entrepreneurs and emerging businesses in Northeast Indiana. Of course, donations benefit you, too. The NIIC is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Contributions in excess of the fair value of goods and services received by the donor may be tax deductible. Please consult your personal tax advisor.

As a nonprofit, we rely heavily on the generosity and benevolence of others. Donations fuel our mission and help us continue our vision of being a top entrepreneurial community of choice.

Support the Northeast Indiana Innovation Center in providing quality services and inspiring diverse entrepreneurs in our community. Moreover, improve yourself and your business in the process.

Planned Giving:

Charitable intentions and donations can be realized and fulfilled through:

  • CHARITABLE ANNUITY. Receive payments back during your lifetime, save on current income taxes and possibly reduce or eliminate estate taxes and probate expenses.
  • GIFTS OUTSIDE YOUR WILL. Help our organization with a donation that avoids probate by naming The NIIC as a beneficiary on appreciated securities, retirement plans, insurance policies and/or real estate.
  • GIFTS THROUGH YOUR WILL. Leaving a contribution as a bequest can help reduce estate taxes and ensure the work you’re passionate about continues onward.

Impact Giving:

As a donor, there are many ways to support The NIIC:

  • PROGRAM-SPECIFIC DONATIONS. Contribute to an area of The NIIC that you have a specific interest (e.g., business incubation and growth acceleration programs, WEOC, coworking and Professional FlexSpace, the campus master plan and more).
  • CAPITAL EQUIPMENT. Fund the acquisition of specific capital equipment to further improve our resources and services.
  • NAMING RIGHTS. Put your name on our Innovation Park, a future building, suite or room to be constructed.
  • UNRESTRICTED GIFTS. Contributions go toward the best use and most needed projects under consideration.
