For the greater good of Central Indiana: IndyStar’s Community Impact Report

Since the first edition of IndyStar published on June 6, 1903, it’s been our mission to produce work that serves the greater good of Hoosiers in Central Indiana and beyond.

We have a track record of service that includes multiple Pulitzer Prizes as well as local, state and more national recognitions. Our work reaches millions of readers every month. More importantly, IndyStar journalists have demonstrated an ability to connect with their neighbors to unpack the issues affecting their quality of life, identify solutions and inspire change that makes Indiana a better place for us all to live. After all, this is our home, too.

On this page, you’ll find examples of work we’ve done that has made a demonstrable impact in the lives of some of our neighbors. Our readers and subscribers have made this kind of essential work possible. Simply put: we wouldn’t be IndyStar without you. Thank you.

How we track our impact

IndyStar, as part of the USA TODAY Network, defines impact as real-world change inspired by our journalism. We track 12 types of impact, including direct benefits to our sources — readers donating to pay rent for someone on the brink of homelessness — law and policy change, new legislation, government investigations or other institutional actions such as hirings, firings or reorganizations.
