Alumni & Giving
I believe it is fair to say that philanthropy has been a civilizing influence beyond measure; that it has been the font for many of the inspirations of progress; and that America is forever being improved by the generous impulse of her citizens.
-Herman B Wells, IU Chancellor, 1962-2000
Philanthropy is one of the oldest traditions at Indiana University – from building the Indiana Memorial Union to the land our campus is built upon, private support at all levels is what has transformed IU and the School of Informatics and Computing into a global leader in education and research.
Annual Giving provides current-use funds that support critical, otherwise unfunded programs within the School. Gifts renewed on a yearly basis allow for student scholarships, faculty enrichment, alumni events, and employee wellness.
The Accelerator Corporate Giving Program
The Accelerator Corporate Giving Program is a relationship-enhancing investment opportunity that accelerates a company’s ability to address their specific, strategic needs.
Class support for IU is a long-standing tradition. Students are encouraged to make their first gift to the School upon graduating in the amount of their graduation year (i.e. $20.15 for 2015 graduates).
To create a lasting impact, consider naming the School in your will, a charitable gift annuity, or a gift of retirement plan assets. Our planned giving team at the Indiana University Foundation can assist finding the right option for you.
These gifts provide the margin of excellence in all areas of teaching, research, and service. Leadership and Major Gifts include significant gifts of cash and appreciated stock, deferred gifts, and gifts of real estate and other gift vehicles.
To drive economic development and educate tomorrow’s technology and information leaders, we rely on the generous support of our alumni, parents, and friends. Every gift is important, genuinely appreciated, and a sound investment in our future.
