IHEARTMEDIA INDIANAPOLIS LAUNCHES COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM

Published: October 1, 2020

iHeartMedia Indianapolis announced today community partnerships with eight nonprofit organizations that address the physical, spiritual, academic or emotional needs of the Indianapolis community. Beginning October 1, iHeartMedia Indianapolis will support the mission of these organizations through the stations’ assets including on-air, on stations’ websites and on social media.

iHeartMedia Indianapolis will create in-kind media campaigns for the following nonprofit organizations: Damien Center; Families First Indiana; Horizon House; Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc.; Kids’ Voice of Indiana; Girls Inc. of Greater Indianapolis; Shalom Health Care Center; and TechPoint Foundation for Youth. Each nonprofit will also be given a designated on-air station personality to serve as public ambassador. The last set of media campaigns will end in September 2021.

Each community partner will create a three-month marketing campaign based on their specific needs, including seeking volunteers, raising awareness and promoting events. iHeartMedia's Indianapolis Local Advisory Board (LAB), comprised of over 15 community leaders, selected the recipients through an extensive application process.

“It is inspiring to see iHeartMedia Indianapolis create positive change and improve the lives of others in our community,” said David Siler, President and CEO of Families First Indiana. “This commitment provides Families First the opportunity to increase our community awareness and raise critical funds to provide services to heal the heart and soul of families going through challenging times.”

“We are thrilled to introduce this community partnership program to the Indianapolis market and establish an even greater community footprint,” said Brett Beshore, Market President of iHeartMedia Indianapolis. “Our partners work hard to make Indianapolis an equitable and welcoming city for all. In return, we look forward to helping them build community campaigns to achieve their goals to better Indianapolis.”
