Indiana: a great place to call home

At the IU Foundation, we’re fortunate to have offices in Bloomington and Indianapolis, as well as a presence in downtown Chicago. In addition to living and working in these vibrant cities, we are deeply engaged members of our communities.

My previous job with the LPGA had taken me to Europe and provided some really cool experiences. But when we had the opportunity to come back to Bloomington to put down roots and raise our daughter here, it was a dream come true.

Forbes calls Indianapolis “America’s Most Underrated City”

We couldn’t agree more. From its low cost of living to its burgeoning food scene (Zagat named Indy one of its Most Exciting Food Cities), Indianapolis offers IU Foundation employees a high standard of living in one of America’s up-and-coming big cities.

And, because our office is located in the heart of the IU Indianapolis campus, IUF employees are just a short walk from all the amenities offered by Indy’s vibrant downtown.

I’ve really enjoyed getting to better understand the culture of IU Indianapolis. Even as an Indianapolis native, I’d never fully interacted with the campus. Now I look out my window and can see students walking by; it’s a nice reminder of why we do what we do.
