Supporting Organizations

As part of its community leadership, the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana serves as the “parent” for four organizations that provide important resources in our community. The non-profit “subsidiaries” listed below are classified as supporting organizations by the Internal Revenue Service. Each non-profit is a separate public charity for tax purposes, operates autonomously and receives cost-effective administration from the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana.


Carnegie 3The Jeffersonville Carnegie Library Foundation Inc. (formed in 2003) owns the Jeffersonville Carnegie Library, a 1904 Beaux Arts building in downtown Jeffersonville that is named for its benefactor, Andrew Carnegie, who funded nearly 1,700 libraries nationwide. The Jeffersonville Carnegie Library Foundation oversaw a $4 million renovation of the  building, making it a jewel in our area and maintains all current operations.
