Get involved

People who participate in fundraising walks enjoy being part of a community effort – they’re not just donating money, they’re showing their philanthropic dedication through their actions while building connections with others. Service, collaboration, and community engagement are central to The Sycamore Foundation’s mission, so staging a fundraising walk was a natural extension of our efforts.
“Walking for Dreams is an amazing fundraiser. What a great way to raise funds for local non-profits. What I love about this particular fundraiser is the camaraderie and positive energy shared amongst the participants. All are gathered not as competitors, but as a group of people wanting to give back to enhance our collective community. It feels like a family reunion every time we gather.” -Ontay Johnson, Executive Director, 100 Black Men of Indianapolis, Inc.

For Organizations:

The Sycamore Foundation understands the constraints of an annual budget force you to be selective about which events are worthy of your time. We cover nearly all the logistical costs of Walking for Dreams, so you need only focus on promoting the event and recruiting walkers.

Many participating charities provide walkers with T-shirts, as a way to acknowledge walkers and to visually raise awareness of their organization. Walkers typically make their own donations, along with raising Indy pledges or Evansville Pledges from friends and family.

If your organization would like to be considered for our next walk, please register here.

For Walkers:

Every day, small charities are making a big impact in your community. You may not see the work they do, but you’ve probably seen the results of their efforts. These organizations may be capable of doing so much more, but budget constraints limit their options. Your participation in Walking for Dreams enables charities to help more people.

When you register, you choose to walk for one of our designated charities. You may walk as an individual, or as part of a team, and regardless of which option you choose, you are part of a larger team – a group of individuals that shares a commitment to philanthropy and community.
