Make a Difference

With your help, we can make a difference.

When you support the Black Philanthropy Circle (BPC), you not only change the lives of students but help continue the mission of the IU Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs (OVPDEMA) as it works to replace obstacles with opportunities so that minority and underrepresented students, faculty, and staff find a sense of belonging at IU.

Listen to the Founding Members

Diverse philanthropy is one of the most powerful tools we have in supporting historically underserved communities. Indiana University's Black Philanthropy Circle, the first of its kind, is the perfect reflection of this spirit. By gathering a group of passionate individuals from across IU, the Black Philanthropy Circle is dedicated to one central goal: helping Black students, faculty, and staff succeed at IU.
