Be a part of the gift that gives back. The YMCA is a non-profit organization that puts Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

When you give to the Y, you’re doing your part to strengthen our community—and a strong community is good for everyone.

Whether you’re helping a child in need attend summer camp, giving someone the assistance they need to make a healthy change in their life, or contributing to the construction of a new Y facility, your gift will let us continue to affect positive change in central Indiana.

In honor of Eric’s Ellsworth’s 40+ years of faithful service to the Lord through the YMCA, we have established the Eric. J. Ellsworth YMCA Christian Mission Endowment Fund to support the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis Foundation.

These designated funds will be used for decades to come to continue the intentional YMCA Christian mission efforts Eric championed here in Indianapolis. Your donation will be held forever, growing and earning interest that the Y will use to maintain focus on its Christ-centered mission. Contributions to the Eric J. Ellsworth YMCA Christian Mission Endowment Fund also qualify you to become a member of the YMCA’s Heritage Club. Each individual in this prestigious group has made an outright or planned gift to support our endowment.
