The Indianapolis Public Transportation Foundation is dedicated to supporting accessible and inclusive public mobility solutions throughout Marion County and the surrounding area. Through philanthropic efforts such as public-private partnerships, fundraising, and grant-writing, the Foundation seeks to invest in programs and opportunities that create public transportation and transit options for all people throughout the region.

About the Indianapolis Public Transportation Foundation (IPTF)

The Indianapolis Public Transportation Foundation (IPTF) was incorporated in August of 2018 for the purposes of “promoting mobility for the citizens in our community by connecting resources and investing in programs and services that enhance accessibility and quality of life.”  IPTF received designation for tax exemption as a 501(c)(3) in June 2019.

The IPTF is a separate entity from the Indianapolis Public Transportation Corporation (IndyGo), though the Foundation works closely with mobility providers throughout the area.

How to Donate

We know that access to public transportation and mobility options strengthen individuals’ independence and are a backbone for community growth and development. The Indianapolis Public Transportation Foundation, with your support, will work to enhance public transportation and create better access to employment, medical services, education, and other enriching and essential services.

The Foundation is looking to pursue initiatives such as fare assistance programs for low-income, disabled, and other at-risk populations, as well as alternative/non-traditional public transportation solutions, such as micro-transit, where there are current public transit service gaps.

The Foundation will work to improve access to public mobility options in our community. We are calling on all individuals, advocates, businesses and corporations, institutions and organizations that understand the impact of public transportation and mobility solutions to see this as an immediate and important opportunity to invest in enhancing public mobility options for the Indianapolis community.
