Clarence Crain, a former program director for Lilly Endowment, was elected to serve on the endowment’s board.
“My colleagues and I could not be more pleased that Clarence has agreed to join
our board,” said N. Clay Robbins, chairman, president and CEO of the
endowment. “His deep knowledge of the Indianapolis community and key
national organizations that the Endowment supports will be most valuable as we
envision, conduct and evaluate our grantmaking.”
Crain spent 14 years as a program director for the endowment’s education division. Prior to that, he worked for 30 years at General Motors.
While at the endowment, Crain administered many of the grants to organizations that serve African American youth, including Center for Leadership Development, Indiana Black Expo, Indianapolis Urban League and Fathers and Families.
