IU Day

IU Day gifts will help students!

So much at IU is made possible by private philanthropy! Please consider joining us in celebrating today's IU students and alums who are doing amazing things like studying abroad, engaging in life-changing performance opportunities, or graduating from IU virtually debt-free.

IU Day is a worldwide, huge-impact community moment to look ahead and consider the needs of future students, alums, staff, faculty, parents, friends, and fans! On April 17, when you make a gift of $50 - $5,000 to a qualifying scholarship, IU will match it dollar for dollar until matching funds run out.

Support diverse student experiences and success at IU.
