We’re Working to make East Central Indiana great!
Star Press Media Group doesn't just cover our community; we're a part of it. That's why we believe the role of The Star Press involves more than reporting the news. From raising awareness for local hunger issues to sponsoring local events, our commitment is to improve areas where we live and work. Each year, The Star Press works in partnership with a variety of local organizations to support fundraising efforts aimed at making East Central Indiana a better place to live and work.
The Star Press annually provides monetary support to nonprofit organizations through:
Gannett Foundation: A philanthropic foundation sponsored by USA TODAY NETWORK, the Gannett Foundation supports non-profit activities in East Central Indiana and other communities in which USA TODAY NETWORK does business.
The Star Press Children’s Charities, Inc.: Raises funds to be donated via a grant application process to non-profit organizations to support programs that benefit local youths. Since 1997, The Star Press Children’s Charities, Inc. has granted over $345,211 in funds to these groups.
Walk Indiana: A community collaboration aimed toward making Delaware County a healthier, happier community. We are celebrating our fifth annual NON-COMPETITIVE full-marathon, half-marathon and quarter-marathon distances on the gorgeous Cardinal and White River Greenways, whose paved trails makes it possible for walkers of all ages and abilities to participate. The net proceeds are given to the Cardinal Greenway to maintain the trails throughout the year.
