Bicentennial Campaign

For all who will shape our next century

In January of 2020, we will celebrate Indiana University’s 200th birthday. That’s 200 years of forward thinkers and dreamers. Of pioneers and pacesetters. 200 years of world-changing, paradigm-shifting IU ingenuity.

Yet, there’s still so much more to do. We must continue to ask the important questions: What kind of world will future generations inherit? And what can be done to give them the future they deserve? Who can deliver new hope to those who suffer? Who can find solutions that build smarter, healthier communities?

We can. All of us.

Through For All: The Indiana University Bicentennial Campaign, we are celebrating all that we’ve accomplished in our first 200 years and supporting all the promise our next two centuries hold. This unprecedented, university-wide campaign will honor our past and create a brighter future for all.

Will you join us?

115,000 students. 650,000 alumni. 1 historic campaign.

This campaign is for all of us: for the Jaguars and Hoosiers, the Red Wolves and Titans. The proud alumni and close friends. The companies and communities that understand how an investment in IU equals an investment in our state, nation, and world.

Through our hard work, our restless spirits, and our refusal to accept the status quo, we’ve established IU as a premier research institution and a pacesetter for academic freedom, tolerance, and international exchange. When you give to IU, you strengthen that legacy and expand the impact of our efforts exponentially.

With your help, we will unite IU alums and supporters and secure the funds critical to fueling IU’s academic and research efforts. And we will cement IU’s position as a destination for the next generation of problem-solvers and change agents.

For all who love IU—and Meryl Streep

For all we’ve accomplished thus far

In just one year since the campaign’s public launch, we’ve already witnessed historic generosity—from gifts that have transformed Assembly Hall to scholarships that enable deserving students to receive the financial support they need to pursue their dreams.

Thanks to support across all eight IU campuses, we’re on pace to reach our goal of $2.5 billion by 2020. But the impact of these gifts extends far beyond attaining a numerical goal. The support we’ve received thus far has paved the way for life-changing new initiatives, including:

  • 1,800 scholarships
  • 71 graduate fellowships
  • 91 endowed chairs and professorships

But this is just the beginning. There are so many more students, faculty, and staff deserving of our support—men and women who can’t achieve their incredible potential without a helping hand. That’s where you come in.

You can help future IU students become the first members of their families to attend college; you can support faculty as they pursue world-changing ideas; and you can help create the resources that will fuel the next generation of world-changers.
