Development at IU

Development at IU

IU has a decentralized development structure, which means IU Foundation staff members work in partnership with development staff at individual Indiana University schools, programs, and campuses, all toward one goal: to help donors directly connect with and support the programs that mean the most to them.

Within our decentralized environment, we actively collaborate with university colleagues to foster and maintain strong personal connections to the campus and academic programs we’re helping support.

The IU Foundation supports a network of highly talented people who form a community dedicated to advancing the promise made possible through private support to Indiana University. If you want to learn and grow professionally, come join our community of pride and purpose.

IU’s Bicentennial Campaign

For All Logo

In September 2020, For All: The Indiana University Bicentennial Campaign came to a successful close. This historic fundraising campaign—the largest in IU history—raised nearly $3.9 billion across all IU campuses, endowing more than 5,800 undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships, as well as 235 professorial positions.

This campaign united IU alumni and supporters in the shared goal of creating a brighter future for all—and has positioned the university for continued achievement in the centuries to come. 

This is just one example of the life-changing work we do here. If you’d like to use your talents to shape our next historic endeavor, we’d love to hear from you. 

We have the opportunity to work for an organization that’s really making a difference in so many lives, directly and indirectly, every day. That’s the most fulfilling piece of being here: I get to do really good work every day.
