As Indiana University embarks on its third century of educating young leaders, the IU Student Foundation has the opportunity to strengthen and grow in exciting ways. Over the course of the last 71 years, IUSF has shaped lives, careers, and communities. With the help of donors like you, we can impact even more students by continuing to provide leadership experience, scholarship opportunities, professional development, career connections, and lifelong friendships.
When You Support IUSF, You Support Student Leaders
Simply put, to benefit Indiana University. Research has demonstrated that engaged students become engaged alumni. For example, 33 percent of IU’s 650,000 living alumni donate to the university, but a whopping 68 percent of IUSF’s 14,300 living alumni give.1 IUSF alumni also volunteer to serve their alma mater at a higher rate than the general alumni population.
Whether you make a one-time gift or a recurring gift, your support will benefit the IUSF experience—making it possible for us to engage more students and be more intentional about the programming we offer. The result will be more IU graduates who are confident, experienced problem-solvers and driven, resilient leaders.
