Ways To Give to the YMCA

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


Give Back to the Community

When you give 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 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.

A Four-Star Charity Navigator Organization

In 2021, the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis was designated at a four-star Charity Navigator organization for the 12th consecutive year.

Our YMCA is among only 2% of evaluated charities who have earned the 4-Star designation for at least ten consecutive years. Your YMCA is a great investment for your philanthropic resources.
