Indiana Chamber Foundation

Indiana Chamber Foundation

The Indiana Chamber Foundation commissions practical policy research, initiates actions and seeks solutions that positively impact Indiana’s economic future and enhance the quality of life for all Hoosiers.

Most notably, it includes the Indiana Vision 2025 long-range economic development plan for the state, as well as its supporting biannual report cards on how the state is progressing.   

Other highlights from the Foundation include:

  • December 2019 update on the groundbreaking water study of five years earlier and the impact it continues to have toward development of a long-term water resources plan
  • Summer 2019 report goes back 20 years to the original state economic development plan (Economic Vision 2010) and outlines some of the many accomplishments over the past two decades.
  • 2019 update to the original Indiana Venture Capital Study (2000) and the evolution of the venture capital investment tax credit;
  • the 2017 study on the impact school corporation size has on student achievement;
  • a 2016 work share study that shows the benefits of this program for employees, employers and the state when the next economic downturn hits;
  • ongoing school counseling research; and
  • an annual employer survey on workforce needs and trends.

Education and workforce remain a key focus for the Foundation. We encourage you to check out the many quality state programs and resources that are supporting these areas.

The Indiana Chamber Foundation relies on the generous support of individuals, corporations and foundations to ensure our ability to facilitate the growth and development of Indiana’s economic climate.

We are grateful for all the investors who make this work possible, especially Duke Energy; NIPSCO, a NiSource Company; Vectren, A CenterPoint Energy Company; Indiana Michigan Power; Indiana American Water; the Indiana Energy Association; OneAmerica and Toyota.
