Youth Development YMCA Annual Campaign supporting the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis
the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis

Why Give?

It is our belief that every child, no matter their circumstances, have the opportunity to make friends, try new things, and develop leadership skills in a place where they feel safe. These are the building blocks to help children grow in to strong, independent, and compassionate adults. Our goal is never to turn anyone away based on an ability to pay for programs, and we rely on the generous support of donors from our community to make this a reality to children and families in our community.

The Youth Development YMCA serves over 14,000 children each year in our Before & After School, School’s Out Camp, and Summer Day Camp programs. Our goal is to never turn a family away based on inability to pay, as it is our belief that every child deserves opportunities to learn and grow in a safe environment. We rely on donors like you to help support the families in our community. 100% of the dollars raised goes directly towards scholarships or financial assistance for families in need.
