Colts Owner Jim Irsay Gives $1 Million to the United Way

Jim Irsay

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay donated a million dollars to the Indiana United Way prior to a game at Oil Stadium, as reported by NBC. This is the twelfth time someone has made a single donation of a million or more to the organization, and the money will go towards its “New U” community campaign.

President and CEO of the Indiana United Way, Ann D. Murtlow, said, “Jim’s generosity to our community is legendary. He’s now taking that generosity to new levels by investing in our long-term commitment to improve community conditions for generations to come.”

Irsay, who donates a portion of ticket sales from one game a year to the United Way, served on its board of directors from 2007 to 2014. The goal of the organization is to help those at risk become self-sufficient.

Jim Irsay’s father, Robert Irsay, purchased the Baltimore Colts before the team moved to Indianapolis. He became the youngest owner of an NFL team at the age of 37. Irsay was raised Catholic, but his father came from Hungarian Jewish ancestry. He wasn’t made aware of his Jewish roots until he was a teenager.
