Town of Zionsville receives grant from Duke Energy Foundation

The town is one step closer to having even more vibrant holiday light displays in downtown Zionsville thanks to a Local Community Development Grant from the Duke Energy Foundation.


The Town of Zionsville recently received a $5,000 grant from the Duke Energy Foundation for downtown holiday enhancement. The Town will use this money in the 2017 holiday season to help fund additional LED holiday lighting.


“We already know that Downtown Zionsville and our unique brick street is one of the best destinations in the region during the holidays,” Zionsville Mayor Tim Haak said. “With this additional money, we will work in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce to enhance the holiday lighting display and to continue to make positive changes.”


According to Dan Rhodes, Government and Community Relations Manager at Duke Energy, this is the first year for this particular program, but Duke has supported other programs and other non-profits in Zionsville and Boone County.


“Duke Energy believes in the potential of all of the communities we serve. We choose projects to support we hope make a positive improvement in the lives of our customers,” Rhodes said.


Duke Energy offers local community development grants up to $10,000 to nonprofit organizations whose programs and missions support at least one of the Duke Energy Foundation's three investment priorities: K to career, environment and community impact.
