Inspiring Sports Exchange

As part of Indiana Sports Corp’s strategic plan, as a not-for-profit company and the country’s leading sports commission, we have worked with several partners to create the Inspiring Sports Exchange. This is an online tool that connects youth-serving organizations with Indiana companies and individuals who have sports equipment, volunteer hours, facilities, and other resources to donate. In 2017, Indiana Sports Corp impacted 95,163 Indiana youth through a number of programs and initiatives.
