Leadership Giving

You have the power to change lives

Right now, tens of thousands of IU students are taking another step toward a brighter future. They are learning new things in classrooms across the state. Gaining real-world experience through a myriad of internship opportunities across the country. Discovering new cultures in foreign study programs across the globe.

And they have you to thank.

Your gifts expand IU's reach and open a world of possibilities to our students. You go all in—and for that, we are forever grateful.

The university treasures above all else the devotion and loyalty of her friends and alumni.

Herman B Wells, IU's 11th president
