Interview with IU's Black Philanthropy Circle

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.
