Annual Campaign

Each gift to the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis has a lasting impact on our residents.


Every day, the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis gives our neighbors the support they need to learn, grow and thrive.

The Annual Campaign supports our 100,000 members, 3,600 volunteers and our friends and partners throughout the community. We take on the challenges that shape our future by tackling the achievement gap and teaching healthy life habits. Everything the Y does is in service to building a better us.

As a non-profit organization, the YMCA is able to provide opportunities to the community because of the generosity of donors. Donors help the Y offer a variety of programs so everyone, working parents, older adults, and children can achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

We still need your help.

More people than ever need our assistance. By donating to the Annual Campaign, you can make a world of difference—right in your own community.

Here’s What You Can Do With One Gift:

Allows five people to attend the YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program for one year, providing the tools and support they need to break the diabetes cycle.

Provides one family with a membership, giving them dedicated time-sharing, wholesome family activities, and opportunities to grow closer together.

Enriches the life of an older adult on a fixed income with a Senior Membership, helping them stay healthy and active in their community.

Provides a child or teen from a low-income family with a YMCA Youth Membership, giving them a place to learn from positive role models—and a place to belong.

Gives a child the advantage of a pre-Kindergarten education for a month, ensuring they’ll start school ready to learn.

Gives a child valuable life-saving skills with 7 weeks of swim lessons, or allows a child to participate in soccer, basketball, flag football or baseball in one of our Youth Sports Leagues.
