Charitable Contributions

Giving back is an important aspect to membership in the Indiana Apartment Association.

Anthony G. Gorup Foundation

Named after the IAA Executive Director from 1973 – 1999, The Anthony G. Gorup Education Foundation is a public benefit corporation, operated exclusively for the following charitable and educational purposes:

  • To promote the future of the Indiana apartment industry through education and contribution
  • To support and fund scholarships and/or fellowships to further the education of individuals interested in any facets of the apartment industry
  • To educate the general public and the apartment industry about economic and business, opportunities and issues that impact the future of the Indiana apartment industry

The Indiana Apartment Association has been hosting an annual fundraiser for the Foundation every year since 2001, generating thousands of dollars. The Foundation recently contributed $30,000 to the Ball State University Residential Property Management Program to be used for scholarships.

Rebuilding Lives

In 2008, the multifamily housing industry suffered losses from severe weather. From tornadoes to floods, apartment communities across the state saw devastation that reached beyond the owners and management companies and directly impacted the residents living there.

With that in mind, IAA started its philanthropic focus in 2009 to help apartment community residents who find themselves in a position of replacing their belongings and rebuilding their lives.

Our goal for the “Rebuilding Lives” campaign is to establish a support center to provide donations and emergency supplies when disaster strikes. At a time when a property and residents are facing losses due to fire or natural disaster, we want to be there…whether through donating clothing, food, water or a helping hand, the Indiana Apartment Association wants to support our members. Click here to make a donation.


SAL was created in memory of Sally Lentz-Crouse, who was a leader in the multifamily housing industry and one of the first woman members of the IAA Board of Directors. To keep Sally’s legacy alive, in 2008 the Indiana Apartment Association began an annual Leadership Retreat. SAL encourages women to reach higher levels of leadership by helping them gain the life skills, knowledge, and confidence needed to achieve their professional and personal goals.
