To put it simply, IU Day is a worldwide event honoring Indiana University and the people who make IU possible (that’s you). Maybe you’re a student getting your start. Maybe you’re an alumnus well on your way. Maybe you’re a parent, friend, or fan with a special place in your heart for “old IU.” In any case, these IU connections are worth celebrating.
There are two great ways to join the festivities:
- Share #IUday. (Don't forget to wear your favorite IU gear!)
- Support the IU cause closest to your heart.
Now, you might be asking, “If IU Day is an event honoring me, then why am I asked to give?” That’s a fair question.
The truth is, the world-class education and research that IU provides are largely dependent on private support. So while honoring IU’s present and past is definitely worthwhile, it’s also our responsibility to look ahead and consider the needs of our future students, alumni, staff, faculty, parents, friends, and fans. Their IU is not yet guaranteed, which is why we ask for your help.
IU Day was celebrated on April 19, 2023.
Spring weather usually allows us to celebrate IU outdoors. IU Day moves slightly year to year to best accommodate campus and exam schedules, weekends, holidays, and other events. But as sure as spring follows winter, you can expect IU Day come April!
We love that you’re excited for IU Day! To share your enthusiasm, simply stamp your social media post with #IUday.
First of all, thank you!
Though IU Day 2023 has ended, it’s never too late to give. Your gift won’t count toward IU Day totals, but it’s your impact that matters most anyway—and you’ll be making a big one. Well done in advance.
Simply go to give.myiu.org, choose an IU cause, and make your gift. That’s it. Gift given!
Most definitely. Visit give.myiu.org/student-support and choose any of the listed IU causes to make a gift that supports IU students.
It sure is. The Indiana University Foundation is a not-for-profit institution with the simple goal of providing IU with the financial support to deliver a world-class education.
