As a pillar of the Indiana community for 50 years, IBE has encouraged and empowered individuals through education, events, and hands-on initiatives. The organization has continued to evolve its programming to find new ways to proactively address the most relevant issues in order to make a valuable contribution for positive change. This is just the beginning.

IBE provides approximately $100k annually to help Indiana students attend college. It adds up to more than $4.6 million in college scholarships since 1983.
