Donor Feature: Julie Burns

Why do you give to Leadership Indianapolis?

“Through SKL, I had the opportunity to engage with a diverse group of young professionals who wanted to impact their community in a positive way. I continued to see the positive impact leaders could have in our community. I continue to support Leadership Indianapolis today, because I think that by exposing community focused people to opportunities to develop these skills, we have a better chance at solving the problems we have in our community.”

Why is civic leadership important to you?

“Civic Leadership is a positive way to engage with a community. It’s how we make our world a little better and hopefully improve it for the next generation. I have always found in any volunteer role I participated in that I get much more out of it than I give.”

How has being a civic leader brought more meaning/impact to your life?

“I think in my current role at Jump IN for Healthy Kids, I am better prepared to give the most to my community and hopefully improve the health of our kids today before it negatively impacts them as adults.”

As Chief Executive Officer for Jump IN for Healthy Kids, Julie is a great representative of the difference our alumni are making in our community. Will you join Julie with your gift to Leadership Indianapolis to make a difference today for tomorrow’s leaders?
