Students Helping Students

Students Helping Students, the philanthropic core of the IU Student Foundation, fosters student generosity at Indiana University through a spring semester peer-to-peer fundraising campaign. Empowering IU students to make an immediate impact on campus, the campaign supports a student-selected cause benefiting IU Bloomington students.

In 2024, we are proudly partnering with the Office of the Chief Health Officer to destigmatize mental health care, shaping a campus environment that fosters understanding and support. Join us in this movement, and together we can create positive change and build our own legacy of giving at Indiana University.
