For nearly 25 years, IUPUI faculty, staff, and retirees have supported the annual Campus Campaign. Over that quarter-century, we’ve fielded a range of questions about the campaign, how to give, and where gifts go. We’ve collected the most frequent inquiries here to help you find the answers you seek.
Your questions, answered.
IUPUI is state-assisted, but the amount of state support is shrinking. The balance comes from tuition, fees, contracts, grants, and private gifts. Every great university depends on the generosity of individuals, corporations, and foundations to provide resources that are not available otherwise.
Every gift is important. We’ve seen the great things that the IUPUI campus community can accomplish when it comes together. The Campus Campaign is no different. Our collective gifts—no matter how big or small—add up quickly and can make a major difference.
The beauty of the Campus Campaign is that you decide exactly what your gift supports. In 2018, more than 1,000 accounts across the IUPUI campus benefited from the Campus Campaign.
The Campus Campaign is run by IUPUI faculty and staff and the IU Foundation for the benefit of the IUPUI campus. All money raised through the Campus Campaign is directed to the IUPUI unit, school, or account of the donor’s choosing.
While many IUPUI units have United Way Campaign coordinators who solicit donations from IUPUI faculty and staff, the money raised supports community programming throughout Central Indiana—from volunteer reading and tax preparation programs to physical fitness and youth leadership initiatives.
Or you can visit give.iu.edu, choose how and to what cause you want to give, and follow the instructions.
You have the opportunity to select one of three options on the payroll deduction form from the drop-down menu under the “Deduction Is” header:
- If you already have an existing payroll deduction in place and would like to add another, select “In Addition To”
- If you don’t currently have any payroll deductions in place, select “New”
- If you would like to replace all of your current payroll deductions and start a new, single payroll deduction, select “Replace All Current”
Many units on campus have a campus campaign coordinator who can provide employees with a gift form and additional information. If you need additional assistance, feel free to contact Pete Hunter, director of development, IUPUI, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-278-5661.
