Celebrating Black History Month

The IU Kokomo Multicultural Center is a place where anyone can come and learn from people with different values, backgrounds, and perspectives. The center aims to promote a welcoming campus by cultivating an inclusive and diverse environment. Inside the center, students, faculty, and staff advocate to replace obstacles with opportunities, building a sense of belonging for minority and underrepresented students. Each semester, the center hosts events to ensure that every student can experience and learn from different cultures. Learn more about how you can support the work of the IU Kokomo Multicultural Center, like their Black History events happening this month!

Trailblazing judge, tireless advocate

As a trailblazer in law and civil rights, Viola J. Taliaferro was known for being a judicial combination of “sternness and empathy.” Her pioneering work to protect children changed countless lives and won numerous awards along the way. In 1995, she became the first Black person to serve as a judge in the Monroe County (Indiana) Circuit Court, which carved a path for other Black law students. Last year, Taliaferro died at the incredible age of 91, but her legacy lives on. Read more about how her tenacity changed things at IU and why she still inspires people around the world.

Whether your gift is one-time or recurring or your company is large or small, your financial support for your favorite IU cause may be eligible to be doubled or even tripled.

Introducing a streamlined, more sustainable way to provide you with important tax information.

In January 2024, the IU Foundation initiated a new way of delivering official tax receipts for your charitable gifts to Indiana University. Whereas our former practice was to mail you a separate tax receipt for every individual gift you made throughout a calendar year, our new practice is to send you a singular, annual receipt for gifts you made during the previous calendar year. 

For gifts that are not made electronically, we will continue to mail you a printed confirmation of your gift; but that will not serve as your official tax receipt. A tax receipt will be mailed to you in January of the year following your gift(s).

Please note that certain kinds of contributions may not be included in your receipt, as indicated underneath your total. Should you have any questions regarding the information on your tax receipt, please contact Gift Services at 800-558-8311 or via email at iufgift@indiana.edu.

Thank you for your generous support of IU!


Your giving matters

The Indiana University alumni network doesn’t have any borders, language, or specific location. It’s a community brought together by people from different backgrounds, origins, and experiences who will do anything to support each other and contribute to your success.
