Bicentennial Campaign

For all you have made possible, we are so grateful

For All: The Indiana University Bicentennial Campaign set the bar higher than any fundraising effort in the university’s history. And the IU faithful rose to the challenge. Even as the campaign closed in one of the most turbulent years in history, you continued to see the value in supporting this university we all love.

Your extraordinary generosity not only met but exceeded the campaign goal—twice—resulting in nearly $3.9 billion raised to support IU students, research, programs, and so much more. These people and programs will transform our world for the better, creating safer, healthier, more vibrant, and more innovative communities for all. And for that, we have you to thank.

Your generosity, by the numbers

For the first time in university history, all IU campuses joined together in support of one common goal. And the IU family came together, too, supporting this effort from all over the world in greater numbers than ever before.

Through this campaign, donors increased the number of endowed scholarships and fellowships at IU by 45 percent and the number of endowed faculty positions by 50 percent. And in a tremendous vote of confidence for IU’s mission, more than 20,000 faculty, staff, and retirees gave generously to position the university for another century of excellence.

Celebrating 200 years of IU

The For All campaign was just one way we celebrated IU’s bicentennial. To mark this momentous occasion, the IU Office of the Bicentennial engaged the IU family through programs exploring, chronicling, and celebrating IU’s first 200 years—and inspiring Indiana University’s next century.
