INDIANAPOLIS – Harrison Painter, Noblesville resident, and Founder of Amplify Indy, has partnered with non-profit Community Outreach for Financial Education to create the Amplify Hope Program, a competitive incubator for social entrepreneurs and emerging non-profits.
The Amplify Hope Program is a 10-month training platform with curriculum based on financial literacy, sustainability, board development, marketing, and more. The program is currently being hosted at Collaborate 317, a 25,000 square foot, co-working space located on Indianapolis’ east side. It will also play host to events and trainings around Hamilton County in 2018.
“Our focus is to create massive positive social impact in central Indiana,” Painter said. “And this partnership allows us to give Amplify Hope members the tools needed to innovate and serve in a purpose-driven ecosystem.”
Amplify Hope has accepted 50 nonprofit professionals from all over central Indiana into the program. The members participate in weekly trainings, bi-weekly mastermind sessions, and monthly accountability groups.
They have 9 monthly challenges to meet, a competitive fundraiser to participate in, and the program caps off with the Amplify Indy Awards happening happening in October, 2018. This program has been self-funded by the founders, but they are seeking grants and corporate sponsorship opportunities to fill in the gaps.
“We want the Amplify Hope Program to impact thousands of lives in Indiana,” said Josh Bach, Community Outreach for Financial Education CEO. “This group of 50 selfless leaders have made a commitment to serving others, and we have committed to giving them an environment that will help them reach their goals.”
