We are shaped by the places we come from and shape those places in turn.
We believe in the power of the arts, humanities, and religion to strengthen and build community, foster deeper connections, and heal the world around us. Taking a people-centered approach, we invest time into building authentic relationships and co-create programming and capacity-building opportunities that address and reflect community needs and values. Housed in the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI, Spirit & Place is a self-funded, radically unique platform based on an ethos of fairness, hospitality, and equity.

As our programming and dialogues have evolved, so too must our practices. Community-Centric Fundraising (CCF) is a new and emerging movement within the nonprofit sector that is grounded in equity and social justice, while centering around community. While this movement is emergent, many of the values and principles of CCF are in alignment with values Spirit & Place has held for the past two decades.
