Collaboration Hub

The Collaboration Hub is a gathering space designed to promote community action while developing and incubating new ideas for inclusive economic growth. This socially innovative ecosystem provides monthly educational programs for its members invested in continuous improvement in Central Indiana.

The Collaboration Hub is open for private and personal meetings that abide by state and city COVID-19 protocols. The Collaboration Hub and Hamilton County Community Foundation are now scheduling meeting room rental appointments, training sessions, and programming (see below) for later this year.

For the remainder of 2021, our Hub space is open to all our regional not-for-profits at no charge. Learn more about this trial membership and the full benefits by emailing us.

All interested not-for-profits can learn more by checking out our Membership sheet or by emailing CollaborationHub@cicf.org.

Hub Hours are the Collaboration Hub’s not-for-profit training programs. During a Hub Hour, foundation staff and regional not-for-profit leaders will gather to exchange ideas and best practices in the field. Hub Hour training topics might include:

  • Social enterprise
  • Finances for not-for-profits
  • Social media for not-for-profits
  • Retirement plans
  • Human resources
  • Equity
  • Grantwriting

All Hub spaces will be socially distanced and maintained with guidelines set by state and local governments. We highly encourage visitors to wear masks when not eating and/or drinking. 

Our members will receive Hub Hours information for upcoming topics. For the remainder of 2021, we are offering Hub Hours free-of-charge to our regional partners and not-for-profits (October – December). Each Hour programming will be made hybrid, both in-person and virtually. In-person will be able to enjoy snacks and beverages. Collaboration Hub memberships are free for the remainder of 2021, so if you want to enjoy a trial phase – just contact us! Membership pricing and details can be found here
