On Wednesday, April 11, 2012 the IUPUI University Library Philanthropy Collections will host Dollars to Deeds: the Lifecycle of Social Enterprise, a ninety-minute forum looking at social change, with speakers from three outstanding organizations at different points in the social enterprise life cycle—start up, sustainability and long-term impact. The forum takes place from 3:00-4:30 p.m. in the Lilly Auditorium on the lower level of the IUPUI University Library at 755 W. Michigan Street in Indianapolis. A public reception will follow the event. Guests can also visit the Philanthropy Archives from 2:00-3:00pm prior to the forum.
