The purpose of the Indy Saints Foundation is to provide an opportunity for serious-minded soccer players to connect with mentors while improving their skills on and off the pitch.
The Indy Saints Foundation (ISF) believes that well-formed soccer players make better family members, employees, co-workers, citizens, role models, and ambassadors of the beautiful game. It does that by providing financial support to its teams in the areas of coaching, housing, education and training, match play opportunities and fostering mentorship opportunities for its players with members of the community.

The Saints were founded in 2017 on the principle of providing high quality training to serious minded soccer players. During the offseason, we made the decision to solidify our commitment to the team and community it serves.
A lot has occurred from the start of the club to now, we have grown from a men’s side, securing an expansion team in the Women’s Premier Soccer League (WPSL), and the creation of our foundation Indy Saints Soccer Foundation. We want to take a moment and share more about these commitments and to ask for your support.
In October of 2017, the vision for creating the Indy Saints Soccer Foundation developed out of a series of meetings with members of the soccer and business community. With the help of the Charitable Allies team, in early April 2018, the vision became a reality. ISSF, incorporated as a nonprofit organization, is in the process for applying to the IRS for recognition for tax exemption.
That being said, with the help of Charitable Allies as our fiscal partner, the foundation is ready to work with the community on raising awareness and support on our initiatives with Indy Saints FC (Over 70,000 people each month are impressed with our efforts already through our social media!).
The foundation exists to support Indy Saints FC to promote and sustain our men’s and women’s amateur teams. Most of you are familiar with the Women’s Premier Soccer League (WPSL), the largest women’s soccer league in the world. This year the Saints will be focusing their efforts on the inaugural season in the WPSL. We were voted by our peers as a Franchise of the Year for 2018. The individual efforts of our players did not go unnoticed as we had 3 WPSL All-Ohio Valley Conference players, and 2 National WPSL players of the week.
We are excited for 2019 as our Head Coach, Kristina Corona HC Depauw University, will be returning to the sidelines to lead the Saints for the summer campaign. Our roster will feature 25 serious-minded soccer players from all levels of the NCAA, NAIA and Club players transitioning in to college teams.
