In Case You Missed It: Partner Matt Troyer Featured as Cover Story in Geist Community Newsletter
Posted in General

Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP partner Matt Troyer is currently featured as the February 2013 cover story in the atGeist.com Geist Community Newsletter for his community involvement. A current Geist and lifelong Hamilton County resident, Troyer has been involved with community organizations for a number of years and currently serves as president of the Geist Half Marathon, Inc.

Troyer became interested in assisting the Geist Half Marathon at the time when an attorney’s help was needed. With the support of Bingham Greenebaum Doll, he helped file a 501(c)(3) application for the charitable event, and this time and effort saved the Geist Half thousands of dollars.

A few years later, “we faced the worst race financially we had experienced,” says Tom Britt, Executive Director of the Geist Half. “Matt stepped in as president, and as a result, the Geist Half had our most profitable year yet in 2012.”

Troyer says he had two visions when he took over the board of the Geist Half Marathon: “My first vision was to put on a great event that people would want to come back to year in and year out, one that the community could be proud of and that the participants would want to make an annual event, not just a one-time deal. The second vision I had was to raise absolutely as much money as we possibly could for the schools.”

Located in northeastern Indianapolis and southeastern Fishers, the Geist-area school foundations Hamilton Southeastern (HSSF) and Lawrence Township (LTSF) benefitted from a $60,000 donation from the funds raised by the Geist Half Marathon. The remaining $20,000 raised was donated to the Geist Half Marathon Grant Program, “empowering teachers or parent volunteers who wish to organize a health and wellness initiative for local children.”

Another Geist-area charity that benefitted from Troyer’s leadership is Prevail, a program that provides assistance to victims of crime and abuse in Hamilton and surrounding counties. Troyer served as president of Prevail for eight years after serving on the board for two. Troyer also served on the board of directors and executive board for three years for the Hamilton Southeastern Schools Foundation.
