The Good Neighbor

Central Indiana Region

In Indiana, home construction is steadily rising and automakers have invested in billions improving their plants. We're also invested in the region. We support affordable housing and financial literacy, and work to imporve the lives of those most vulnerable in our communities.

Give Kids a 'Real' Town

We’re happy to help kids simulate a real day in the JA Biztown community. So, we serve as a bank sponsor and support colleagues who volunteer.

Giving hope to kids in Indianapolis
Huntington Camp Heroes

Sometimes all a child needs is the encouragement to dream big and set goals. Providing that inspiration is important. So for the sixth year, Huntington teamed up with the Indianapolis Colts for Huntington Camp Heroes, a one-day experience for underserved youth in Indianapolis. Twenty-five kids from Young Men, Inc., a ministry-based program geared toward empowering young African-American males, had a chance to visit the Colts Training Camp in Anderson.

The day included a special “VIP” practice viewing, a pep talk with Head Coach Chuck Pagano and a meet and greet with the team. Additionally, each child was provided transportation to and from the training camp, and were given backpacks filled with school supplies, a commemorative t-shirt and treats.

Junior Achievement


We’re longtime supporters of Junior Achievement, and believe that financial literacy is key to strengthening our community. With JA of Central Indiana, more than 30 Huntington volunteers taught financial concepts to many students at our partner school in Indianapolis, Center for Inquiry School 27.

Huntington also sponsored JA’s BizTown, which gives 5th and 6th grade students the opportunity to run businesses in a simulated city. Held at the JA headquarters Indianapolis, the program helps students understand the basic principles involved in financial and employment decisions.        Junior Achievement BizTown® is a registered trademark of Junior Achievement USA and JA Worldwide.

Supporting affordable and sustainable housing
Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership

We promote home ownership, but know that potential homebuyers need to be prepared for the financial demands of owning a home. That’s why we support the Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership (INHP). Since 1988, INHP has worked to help working families and individuals become and remain successful homeowners.

Our colleagues provided mortgage and financial education to future homebuyers to help them understand the home-buying process and to know the risks – and rewards – of home ownership. In addition, Huntington sponsors INHP’s annual Bus Tour and Trivia Night.

Creating affordable housing for low-income seniors

Anderson YMCA Project: We support efforts to create safe, affordable housing for low-income seniors. Huntington was proud to be involved with the renovation of the historic, four-story YMCA building in Anderson.

The top three floors of the building, now called Parkview Place, were converted into 30 apartments with the YMCA offices on the first floor. The units are for adults over 55 living on a limited income, and no one will pay more than 30 percent of their income on rent.

Huntington provided $4 million in construction financing, and helped the organization obtain a $300,000 grant from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati. Episcopal Retirement Homes owns and operates the facility.

Caring For Our Community
Raising funds to combat homelessness

We care deeply about ending homelessness, and over the past four years we’ve been the presenting sponsor of the annual Drumstick Dash, a 4.5-mile foot race held on Thanksgiving morning. Proceeds from the Dash benefit our client, Wheeler Mission Ministries, in its efforts to fight homelessness. More than 120 colleagues participated as either a volunteer or a runner.

Founded in 1893, Wheeler Mission Ministries is a non-denominational, Christian, social services organization that provides vital supplies and services to the poor and homeless in central Indiana.

Toy Shop

Holidays can be difficult for low incomes families who can’t afford to buy presents. To help out, we supported The Salvation Army’s Toy Shop campaign. Our customers and colleagues contributed generously, and hundreds of toys were collected in the month of December at our 40-plus branch locations. More than 50 of our colleagues also volunteered to staff the Toy Shop event at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, helping families select toys for their children. In all, The Salvation Army served 2,205 children in 839 families.
