Indy Gateway:

Dedicated to Sustainability of the Community

Indy Gateway was started by a group of people who love the west side of Indy. And that love has compelled them to dedicate themselves to the area’s long-term sustainability. With many of Indy Gateway’s members active in civic leadership, the organization naturally has ties to several organizations that support this tight-knit community.

Indy Gateway: At a Glance

Indy Gateway, Inc. was formed in 2015 by an exploratory committee of the West Side Chamber of Commerce, comprised of community leaders, residents and neighborhood organizations on Indianapolis’ west side.

The organization initially secured start-up funding from organizations that recognized the need for action to improve the west side of Indianapolis.

On September 24, 2015, Indy Gateway was officially approved by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.

Indy Gateway completed the West Side Strategic Revitalization Plan in 2018, creating a roadmap to bring investment and direct public dollars toward community and economic development.
