Donate to the NIIC.

The NIIC is a thought leader and an acknowledged best-in-class entrepreneurial resource center. We’re fully committed to our mission of being rocket fuel for great ideas, entrepreneurs and innovative companies. We’ve been serving our community and making an impact in entrepreneurship in Northeast Indiana for over 16 years.

As a nonprofit, we rely heavily on the generosity and benevolence of others. Donations fuel our mission and help us continue our vision of being a top entrepreneurial community of choice.

When you give to The NIIC, you’re providing the essential funding to sustain the growth and development of entrepreneurs and emerging businesses in Northeast Indiana. Of course, donations benefit you, too. The NIIC is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Contributions in excess of the fair value of goods and services received by the donor may be tax deductible. Please consult your personal tax advisor.

As a donor, there are many ways to support The NIIC:

  • PROGRAM-SPECIFIC DONATIONS. Contribute to an area of The NIIC that you have a specific interest (e.g., business incubation and growth acceleration programs, WEOC, coworking and Professional FlexSpace, the campus master plan and more).
  • CAPITAL EQUIPMENT. Fund the acquisition of specific capital equipment to further improve our resources and services.
  • ENDOWMENT FUNDING. Provide the necessary resources to maintain and continue enhancing the quality of our world-class facilities and programs.
  • PLANNED GIVING. Charitable intentions and donations can be realized and fulfilled through:
    • IDEAS @ WORK. Contribute to our annual event that helps support students, women entrepreneurs and regional outreach organizations throughout Northeast Indiana.
    • NAMING RIGHTS. Put your name on our Innovation Park, a future building, suite or room to be constructed.
    • AMAZONSMILE. The next time you’re buying something on Amazon, order it on AmazonSmile and choose to support The NIIC. Same prices, but 0.5% of the costs will help benefit our organizations. Click here to follow the link.
    • UNRESTRICTED GIFTS. Contributions go toward the best use and most needed projects under consideration.
    • CHARITABLE ANNUITY. Receive payments back during your lifetime, save on current income taxes and possibly reduce or eliminate estate taxes and probate expenses.
    • GIFTS OUTSIDE YOUR WILL. Help our organization with a donation that avoids probate by naming The NIIC as a beneficiary on appreciated securities, retirement plans, insurance policies and/or real estate.
    • GIFTS THROUGH YOUR WILL. Leaving a contribution as a bequest can help reduce estate taxes and ensure the work you’re passionate about continues onward.

We strive for a high level of transparency and excellence, in all areas of business. Toward that end, we aspire to:

  • Meet or exceed the Better Business Bureau’s Charitable Accountability Standards
  • Comply with Indiana Certified Tech Park Statute requirements
  • Continuously innovate through our commitment to a Quality Management System as demonstrated through the ongoing ISO 9001:2018 registration as a business incubation and acceleration program

Our progress is only possible through the generosity and charitable contributions of our donors. To discuss planned giving, ways of financially supporting The NIIC or if you’re considering additional gifting opportunities, call the Office of the President and CEO at 260.407.1736.
