The Athletic Club Foundation

Originally housed and operated from Indianapolis Athletic Club, the Foundation has underwritten such worthwhile causes as summer camps for kids with disabilities, Special Olympic Camps, boys and girls from disadvantaged homes, Big Brother, and other amateur athletic events like the Indiana High School Girls Volleyball State Finals Banquet.

The Athletic Club Foundation initiates and organizes events for the community (including the St. Patrick's Day Parade, Shamrock Run Walk, Greening of the Canal and Old Oaken Bucket Luncheon) which are allocated to worthwhile entities that support amateur sports. 

Over the years the Indy Sports Foundation has continued to evolve, but it continues to look for ways to support the future of our youth in sports. The Indy Sports Foundation shares our city’s enthusiasm for such events, but – perhaps more vital to the future of Indianapolis – The Athletic Club Foundation recognizes and enhances the role of athletics in the lives of ordinary young people though its financial support, as well as the direct involvement of its members.


The Athletic Club Foundation is a an all-volunteer non-profit organization that supports youth by investing in amateur athletic programs in Indiana.
