Your contribution to IYG has more power than you know! Thanks to our resources, community foundations, and partners, we are able to secure additional funding such as grants and dollar-for-dollar matches. We are dedicated to providing life-changing and life-saving resources to all our youth, which allows us to amplify what is possible for our partner organizations and our community. Together, we can build safer spaces and foster community for Central Indiana’s LGBTQ+ youth.

This event is our annual celebration of the previous year’s triumphs for both IYG and the youth we serve. Join us as we tell our stories and look forward to our new hopes and goals for IYG, our LGBTQ+ youth, and the Indianapolis community at large.  

Crowdfunding via Facebook

Do good with a social media platform you use daily! Create a fundraiser, set a goal, and challenge your friends, family, and other social network connections to help you achieve it! With the support of our combined social networks, we can do more to help central Indiana’s LGBTQ+ youth.  So ask yours to join the fun of a social media campaign! To start a campaign of your own on Facebook, simply create a new post, select “support nonprofit” from the options, and enter Indiana Youth Group as your chosen beneficiary.
