Be a part of the Y giving 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 donate 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.

We see a future filled with positive change. And to ensure we’re a driving force behind this, we’ve embraced a very bold and important vision:

Give Now!
