Happy Anniversary, Girls Inc. of Greater Indianapolis!  The National Bank of Indianapolis is excited to join you as your organization celebrates 50 years of empowering girls to be Strong, Smart, and Bold! We have been honored to partner with Girls Inc. in a variety of ways for over seventeen years and so we are very pleased to serve as the Presenting Sponsor of the 50th Anniversary activities.

As our city’s largest locally-owned bank, The National Bank of Indianapolis is dedicated to the support of our local community, and we believe in enhancing our community through our partnerships. In addition to the bank’s financial partnership, our employees have engaged with the girls by offering financial literacy training and career awareness activities to help them build their skills. Our partnership is very important, because the girls who participate in Girls Inc. programs are better prepared to enter the workforce with stronger skills and the confidence needed to continue to build our community. We believe that Girls Inc. of Greater Indianapolis adds significantly to the quality of life in our community by excelling in facilitating the growth of our young girls into Strong, Smart, and Bold women.  We are proud to support this vision and the positive impact Girls Inc. has upon our community.

We congratulate Girls Inc. of Greater Indianapolis on its 50th anniversary.
