Hoosier IPL offers several benefits to its partners, including:
- Bringing our expertise in the realm of faith and ethics, as well as our influence with faith groups across Indiana, to promote shared environmental concerns.
- Shared programming, including workshops and energy tools.
- Promotion of the environmental efforts of our partners.
While our partners remain their own entities, as does H-IPL, we would like to list these partnerships and our shared projects in mutually agreeable ways on our websites and other promotional materials.
Statewide and regional environmental organizations often work as partners with H-IPL, joining in common cause for mutual benefit in mutually agreed-upon programs in which our resources and priorities intersect, working cooperatively for the common good and sometimes jointly sponsoring programs and initiatives. Each partner retains its distinctive voice and mission. We already work with several environmental partners and are eager to expand similar local and statewide partnerships.
Denominational, Interdenominational, and Interfaith Partnerships
Regional and statewide denominational bodies, and interdenominational and interfaith groups in Indiana, also work as partners with H-IPL, joining in common cause, promoting and publicizing one another’s environmental efforts in their networks, drawing upon our resources and offering their own.
H-IPL offers workshops, networking, tools, and resources to assist religious bodies throughout the state encourage environmental stewardship in their member congregations. For their part, faith partners often help H-IPL seek congregations with whom we might establish closer relationships. They may also, as they are able, give monetary donations to H-IPL and help us seek funding from within their denominations and networks. H-IPL enjoys active partnerships with several faith groups and invites other religious bodies to work with us as well.
Owners of businesses that work in areas such as energy conservation, renewable energy, and other environmentally friendly ventures develop business partnerships with us by providing no-cost or lower-cost services, including education and information, that benefit the groups and individuals we serve. Owners of businesses that aren’t necessarily environmentally oriented may also provide services that help further the work of H-IPL or its affiliates (including printing or IT services, meeting provisions, etc.). We will also work cooperatively with such businesses as regional utility companies to promote the energy welfare of Hoosiers.
