Lilly Endowment, Inc.

The Project on Rural Ministry is made possible by a generous grant through Lilly Endowment, Inc.’s Thriving in Ministry initiative.

Lilly Endowment Inc. is an Indianapolis-based private philanthropic foundation created in 1937 by three members of the Lilly family—J.K. Lilly Sr. and sons Eli and J.K. Jr.—through gifts of stock in their pharmaceutical business, Eli Lilly & Company. While those gifts remain the financial bedrock of the Endowment, the Endowment is a separate entity from the company, with a distinct governing board, staff and location. In keeping with the founders’ wishes, the Endowment supports the causes of community development, education and religion. The Endowment maintains a special commitment to its hometown, Indianapolis, and its home state Indiana. Its grantmaking in religion focuses on supporting efforts to strengthen the leadership and vitality of Christian congregations throughout the country and to increase the public’s understanding of the role of religion in public life.

Originally founded in the small town of Pine Grove, PA, the College’s rural setting has remained constant over the decades, as has its commitment to serving the common good. Educational support for area clergy has been a characteristic of the College from its earliest years, when its first president, Isaac Ketler, instituted a summer Bible conference to train local ministers.
