Ben Grande

Director, Corporate Social Responsibility

As Director of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Ben works across departments and geographies to carry out the company’s three CSR goals of helping team members and their families reach their goals, creating transformational opportunities for residents, and strengthening the quality of life in the communities served.

Ben brings a strong background in event management to his role at Glick, having joined the organization after four years in the events department at Lucas Oil Stadium. His experience coordinating major sporting events such as the NFL Scouting Combine, 2015 NCAA Men’s Final Four, Indianapolis Colts games and more has translated nicely to his role in planning and executing large-scale volunteer events with community partners on behalf of Glick.

Ben is also the Director of Philanthropy for Glick Philanthropies where he manages community relations and leads day-to-day operations associated with grant making and evaluation.

Currently, Ben serves as a board member with the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Inc. and the JCC Indianapolis, as well as on advisory boards for Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana and the Indiana University School of Medicine – Department of Ophthalmology.

Ben obtained his Master of Arts in Philanthropic Studies through the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at IUPUI. He also holds a Bachelor of Science from Indiana University. When he’s not at work or supporting community organizations, Ben enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter and twin boys.
