Room Renovations!

Did you hear about the beginning of our transformation – as a result of the International Design Guild 2014 Design Contest?!

Well the standard has been set….and the bar raised high! Three rooms and two corridors complete. As highlighted on WTHR, Outside the Box was the proud recipient of a $25,000 makeover. But it was so much more! Materials, labor, and unbelievable talent poured in from the amazing donors listed below! In the midst of the transformation – we were then awarded another $25,000 from The Glick Fund, a fund of Central Indiana Community Foundation – with this, we will complete two more rooms!!


This holiday season, as you plan your year-end giving – please consider a donation to a whole room or partial makeover from the menu below! With your generosity, we can impact the lives and learning space for even more of our participants – and make the dream come true of finishing our remaining 12 classrooms!!
