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 follow state and local guidelines. The Collaboration Hub and Hamilton County Community Foundation are now scheduling meeting room rental appointments, training sessions, and programming (see below).

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 spaces may be arranged and maintained with guidelines set by state and local governments. We encourage visitors to respect the comfort level of others when in the space.

Our members will receive Hub Hours information for upcoming topics. Each Hour programming will be made hybrid, both in-person attendees and virtually. In-person partners will be able to enjoy snacks and beverages. Membership pricing and details can be found here. Contact us if you have more questions.
