Tax Filings And Audits By Year

5th Annual IBJ Power Breakfast

The IRS Form 990 is an annual information return that most organizations claiming federal tax-exempt status must file yearly. Read the IRS instructions for 990 forms.

If this organization has filed an amended return, it may not be reflected in the data below. Duplicated download links may be due to resubmissions or amendments to an organization’s original return.

Nonprofit organizations that spend $750,000 or more in Federal grant money in a fiscal year are required to submit an audit covering their finances and compliance. Some of these are program specific, while others, called single audits, look at the entire organization. Nonprofit Explorer has PDFs of these audits for some nonprofits for fiscal year 2015 and later. Theyre provided by the Federal Audit Clearinghouse.

Gleaners Shifts Distribution As Need Soars

Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana will change its distribution methods as the need for food increases.

Gleaners said the number of residents in need of food has doubled since the start of the year and is reaching height-of-pandemic levels. As a result, the food bank will revert back to a drive-through distribution model that was first used during the COVID-19 shutdown.

Gleaners President and CEO Fred Glass said people are waiting for hours standing in line at the onsite Community Cupboard pantry.

These are hard working people who have one or two or three jobs in their household and they are trying to make it, and a lot of them are finding themselves in line for the first time, Glass said.

Gleaners clients say inflation and rising rent are impacting household budgets. Recently, the weekly number of people being served has topped 700. Before the pandemic, 400 people was thought to be the maximum at the pantry.

Gleaners also distributes food to pantries across 21 Indiana counties.

Glass said they are tweaking the drive-through to better distribute wrap-around services, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, and transportation support.

There are things we can do in line, they are a captive audience we can go car to car and help them know services are available, and we intend to take advantage of that as much as we can, Glass said.

What We Aim To Solve


One in seven Indiana residents faces food insecurity. Nearly half of these are children and senior citizens. Hunger is a symptom of other poverty issues, including poor mental and physical health, unemployment or under-employment, homelessness, lack of educational achievement, lack of transportation, and more.Through a collaborative approach, Gleaners seeks to positively affect the lives of those we serve by feeding those in need, and assisting them with additional services that may help improve their food security.

Gleaners Food Bank On Lockdown Evacuating Building After Credible Threat

INDIANAPOLIS Gleaners Food Bank says it is evacuating its building Thursday morning “due to a credible threat.”

In a statement on Twitter, Gleaners said the evacuation and a lockdown were out of an abundance of caution.

Thursday’s distribution at the Community Cupboard and all warehouse operations are canceled.

Those who rely on Gleaners told WRTV this will impact them in a big way.

“I don’t know what I am going to do be doing, I don’t have anything at home at all,” Amy Blackburn said. “I was hoping to be able to get some food from here today. Now since I can’t, I don’t know what I am going to do.”

Blackburn isn’t alone, Fredrick Kendrick said he needs food in order to take his medication.

“I’m about to panic because I don’t know what to do at this point,” Kendrick said. “I have nothing but a chicken fritter in my refrigerator.”

Gleaners says it plans to resume normal operations Friday morning. Food, however, is not distributed on Fridays.

Thank you for your understanding and we work to keep our neighbors, staff and volunteers safe.

Gleaners Food Bank Of Indiana Names Fred Glass President & Ceo

After a 6-month search, the Board of Directors is pleased to announce the selection of Fred Glass as the new President & CEO for Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana. He will succeed John Elliott upon his retirement on September 30.

The interest in this incredibly important leadership position was tremendous, said Chad Mayer, Gleaners Board Chair. The significant response from over 100 qualified applicants is evidence of how important Gleaners Food Bank is to Indiana and across the national food bank network.

Glass is a proud graduate of Indiana University and its McKinney School of Law. He brings a wealth of experience to Gleaners, including high-profile stints as Chief of Staff to former Governor Evan Bayh, President of the Capital Improvement Board, and his leadership of the 2011 Super Bowl Bid Committee that laid the foundation for the 2012 Super Bowl coming to Indianapolis. He served as the Indiana University Athletic Director from 2009-2020, returning to private legal practice at Taft Law in 2020.

Robert J. Hicks, Taft Chairman and Managing Partner, expressed his strong support. Fred is a tremendous talent and the ideal leader to take on the challenge of food scarcity in Central Indiana. He has been a great asset and contributor at Taft, and we will miss him. I am confident that Freds creativity, resolve, and work ethic will take Gleaners Food Bank to the next level in meeting the communitys needs, he said.
