Anchored in neighborhoods throughout metro Indianapolis, the YMCA has the relationships and physical presence to deliver lasting personal and public change.

When you donate to the YMCA, you are ensuring that everyone can experience the benefits of Y membership, including health, fitness and education.

The YMCA is a not-for-profit, four-star Charity Navigator 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.

Our goal is to align your philanthropic interests with the needs of our organization. We’re pleased to offer a wide variety of giving options, designed to meet your needs as a generous supporter.
