School-Community Partnership Investments

Connecting schools to community

School-Community Partnership Investments (SCPIs) are awards that empower community organizations to partner with schools in creating programs that expand educational opportunities for Indianapolis students and families. 

The Mind Trust continues to prioritize SCPIs as a way to help eliminate barriers to student success, expand the impact of local nonprofit organizations, and foster partnership between schools and nonprofits. Since SCPI awards were first distributed in 2019, over $675,000 in funding has been given to local organizations, the majority of which are led by people of color.
