ArcelorMittal pumps funding into six Northwest Indiana nonprofits
ArcelorMittal USA plans to pump $325,000 into 14 nonprofits through its Building Resilience program, including six in Northwest Indiana. The steelmaker, one of Northwest Indiana's largest employers, announced grants Monday to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana, Duneland Family YMCA, Lake Area United Way, One Region, Porter County Parks Foundation and the Society of Innovators. It's the second year of ArcelorMittal USA's Building Resilience program, which provides grant funding to organizations in communities in which it operates. The money is slated to be used for strategic planning, sustainability planning, professional development, new technology, fundraising efforts and diversity and inclusion training. Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana will use its grant to install new technology for educational programming and a digital surveillance system to provide more security at its club in East Chicago, which is undergoing renovations. The Duneland Family YMCA will be able to send four executives to the North American YMCA Development Organization Conference in Indianapolis, where they can learn how to sharpen their fundraising skills to strengthen the group's long-term sustainability.
