Town awards two local organizations grant money

The Town of Zionsville recently awarded the Boys & Girls Club of Zionsville (BAGCOZ) and SullivanMunce Cultural Center grant money from the Town’s Charitable Organizations Fund.


The Town awarded $97,500 to BAGCOZ for repair and maintenance of the parking lot at the West Club, including paving the gravel portion of the parking lot as well as upgrading the existing paved lot. The funds from the Town, in addition to funds from Lowes and United Way of Central Indiana, helped the Club offset costs of necessary repairs.


“Having the support of the Town of Zionsville and Mayor Haak has been instrumental in getting this project moving. This partnership is crucial to the success of the BAGCOZ,” said Executive Director Tim Fretz.

This is the second time the BAGCOZ has received funds from Zionsville. Previously, the Club received funds for HVAC repairs.


The Town also awarded SullivanMunce Cultural Center $20,076 to replace two aging air conditioner units in the museum building, both currently running beyond the typical service life. Replacement is needed to ensure optimal preservation of the historical collections in the museum. 


“We would like to thank Mayor Haak and the Town of Zionsville for this grant which will ensure optimal preservation of our historical collection,” said SullivanMunce Cultural Center Executive Director Cynthia Young. “A sudden complete failure of these units could have caused heat-related damage to the town's historical artifacts and documents.”


“These funds will go to great use to benefit two very important organizations in Zionsville,” said Mayor Tim Haak. “Every day, 230 children visit BAGCOZ for before and after-school programs. And SullivanMunce is the only organization of its kind in the area and the single organization that preserves the history of Zionsville. We’re happy to support both BAGCOZ and SullivanMunce.”
