Gift Development

Campus Campaign

Each year, IU East's faculty and staff members contribute to the Campus Campaign. Their gifts help provide scholarships, make international travel possible, create internship opportunities, grow our campus through capital investment and launch new programs and projects.

In its simpliest form, however, their generosity helps to create new opportunities for our campus and further prepares our students. Thank you for your investment in IU East and our future.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Campus Campaign?

The 2019 Campus Campaign features nine funds that provide various possibilities for our students. Each fund has been sponsored by an academic school or the campus to raise awareness for these philanthropic opportunities.

As an incentive, all gifts to these featured funds will be matched dollar for dollar by its sponsor – up to an aggregate contribution of $5,000 to each fund.

However, if you prefer to support another fund or campus project, please know all gifts to IU East are welcome.

We invite you to contribute to the Campus Campaign and support one of the many programs that help fulfill the promise to our students.

On Wednesday, April 10, 2019, all donations to the campaign will also be matched dollar for dollar, up to $10,000 by a generous donation from First Bank Richmond (Maximum match amount from First Bank Richmond match is $500 per donation).

Why is the Campus Campaign so important?

Gifts from faculty and staff provide funding for important initiatives and scholarships on the IU East campus, and are an endorsement of the university, announcing to alumni, friends, businesses, and community that IU East is worthy of support and that support starts with "us."
