Why Give?

Throughout Hendricks County & Wayne Township, countless people know the Hendricks Regional Health YMCA. But there’s more to our Y than one might think.

The YMCA is called to lead in times of crisis. Your support is vital as we navigate together an ever-changing landscape with the COVID-19 pandemic. For over 165 years, the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis has never lost sight of the needs of others. Whether that means teaching kids the skills to remain safe around water, helping cancer survivors regain health and build community or preparing teens for success in college, the YMCA has been there.

Now, the YMCA is tackling the demands faced by our friends and neighbors during the current crisis. In this time of uncertainty, the Indianapolis Y is rising to the challenge in many ways. Your gift will allow the YMCA to deliver care as we have for years. ​

It will also empower us to offer special services right now like:
o special personal communication to check on the health and welfare of our senior members
o daily devotions on Facebook for all who need spiritual guidance during this difficult time
o virtual access to internationally acclaimed fitness classes, and care for the children of first responders and healthcare workers in partnership with Witham Hospital, the Downtown IU Hospitals, Eskenazi Health and the VA Hospital. 

Hendricks County & Wayne Township face new challenges that create a greater need than ever for the work we do every day. Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see opportunities for our members, volunteers and staff to make a difference.
But we need your philanthropic support to make it happen.

The Y. For a better us.
