Overview:

ARGI Gives

ARGI Gives was founded by ARGI employees in 2015, bringing together their time, talents, and resources through a corporate giving program. Its mission focuses on improving the lives of other members of our local communities. ARGI Gives is overseen by a committee comprised of a diverse team of ARGI employees with different charitable interests and a common focus on impacting the community.

Community Grant Program

ARGI Gives provides grants in the communities of Louisville, Kentucky; Bowling Green, Kentucky; Cincinnati, Ohio; Indianapolis, Indiana; and Grand Rapids, Michigan. We are proud to assist local nonprofit and charitable organizations that positively impact the communities in which we work and live.

Please note that while we wish to extend our reach to many organizations, it is impossible to fund every request. ARGI Gives focuses our grant-giving impact on organizations that promote education, environment, health, or youth.

Our Community Grant Program is an opportunity for organizations seeking assistance for projects and programs. These community grants range from $500–5,000.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
