Indianapolis Indians Charities is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to helping youth and families grow stronger together, learn more and live healthier lives. The nonprofit is focused on supporting organizations in four areas: youth development, family success, education and neighborhood development. Since being founded in December 2018 the organization has donated more than $1M to local non-profits.
In collaboration with the Indianapolis Parks Department and Echo Tools, Indians staff took to Forest Manor Park for the largest field renovation project in franchise history. The day-long project included a complete rebuild of the large baseball diamond and refurbishment of the youth and softball diamonds. The renovation included re-leveling the largest field, putting down over 20,000 feet of new sod, replacing home plate and installing new fencing around the ballpark. Four community entities use the diamonds at Forest Manor Park—Indy Parks, Indianapolis Public Schools, RBI Indianapolis and The BASE Indianapolis.
Indianapolis Indians Charities is proud to support 501(c)(3) partners through grant funding. Partners whose efforts benefit youth development, family success, education and neighborhood development are welcome to apply for funding.
Every season the Indians wear specialty jerseys during select home games, ranging from MARVEL Super Hero jerseys to the latest Circle City edition. The game-worn, autographed jerseys are auctioned off with proceeds going to Indianapolis Indians Charities, giving the organization’s nonprofit the opportunity to give back to those in need in Central Indiana.
