Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana will spend $1.8 million to acquire and renovate a building at 1433 N. Meridian St. in Indianpolis for its new headquarters, the Indianapolis Business Journal reports.
The organization plans to start renovating the 20,000 sq. ft., two-story building by mid-October, with completion planned for April, 2019.
The project is funded from a new $7 million fundraising campaign, RISE, for “Reach more kids, Inspire new opportunities, Strengthen our community, Emerge boldly.”
“More kids and families want help, but we need to mobilize enough volunteers to reach them,” Darcey Palmer-Shultz, CEO of of the not-for-profit, said in a statement. “To bring our great service to more kids, we need to make Big Brothers Big Sisters top of mind and engage with our community in a new way.
