INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 25, 2024) — IndyGo and the IndyGo Foundation announced several award winners at the January monthly Board of Directors’ meeting Thursday, Jan. 25. The IndyGo Foundation named IU Health and the IU Health Foundation as the 2023 winners of the annual Partnership Award. Additionally, the agency named several employees as winners of IndyGo’s internal Excellence Awards. 

Partnership Award 

The Partnership Award, sponsored by the IndyGo Foundation, honors a group or organization that has supported IndyGo in making progress and attaining goals. Winners of this award show extraordinary efforts to uplift the organization in relation to policy, teammate or program support, community service, funding, impacting the City of Indianapolis or overall commitment to IndyGo efforts.

“The partnership with IU Health and the IU Health Foundation through their Community Investment Impact Fund affects IndyGo riders and the community on many levels,” said IndyGo Foundation Executive Director Emily Meaux. “Their investment supports financial accessibility to transit and will allow for the construction of more than one dozen ADA accessible bus stops on the Near Eastside. As health professionals, they understand the roles transit and transit infrastructure serve in community health, and we are grateful for their partnership.” 

“At IU Health, we are committed to investing in organizations that support our community’s health and wellness needs,” said IU Health Director of Government and External Affairs Jennifer Andres. “The IndyGo Foundation is fulfilling this commitment as it expands transit access through funding essential infrastructure improvements, offering free and reduced rides on IndyGo and more. We’re honored to play a part in its story.”
