Mon., Aug. 10 – Giving Back at Training Camp
- Virtual Fundraiser – IPS Education Equity Fund & Gleaners Food Bank
During past Colts Camps, the team has hosted collection drives to benefit various nonprofits and efforts in the community. To replace in-person collections, the Colts will host a virtual fundraising campaign for the Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) Education Equity Fund and Gleaners Food Bank.
- The IPS Education Equity Fund was created to expand the school district's capacity to meet the needs of students, teachers and families who are disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 health emergency. The fund supports three key areas of need: rapid response, e-learning and recovery & return.
- Gleaners has long been one of the leading food banks in the state, but recently has been on the front-lines of serving and feeding families, students, senior citizens and others affected by COVID-19.
Fans may donate to both efforts at Colts.com/give-back.

Throughout Colts Camp, the Colts encourage Colts Nation to take a moment to help a neighbor, donate to a community nonprofit or do other good deeds to help brighten the lives of others. Fans who share photos and videos using #ColtsCamp and tagging @ColtsCommunity may be featured on Colts social media channels. Examples include:
- Making a protective mask;
- Picking up trash around your neighborhood;
- Sending a meal to a healthcare worker;

- Thanking an essential worker; or
- Gathering school supplies for a local family or teacher.
