June 28, 2016 – Ground Breaking Ceremony

Groundbreaking-6.28.16 (1)On June 28, we broke ground on a new 7,000 square-foot building and launched the “Imagine campaign”, a $3.6 million fundraising initiative that will allow FACE to expand its services and put Indianapolis on a sustainable path to becoming a “no kill” city.

The entire project will result in a 14,000 square foot facility at the current location, and is expected to be completed by late 2017. The expansion will be funded primarily through private donations. The $3.6 million initiative to support the expansion and strengthen how FACE delivers services is already at 65 percent of its goal. Key leadership gifts have been received from the Joanie Bernard Foundation, the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust and Lilly Endowment Inc.  Watch the Ground Breaking Ceremony here.
