IU to Celebrate Thank a Donor Day on Oct. 10

(BLOOMINGTON) – The Indiana University Foundation and partners across campus are teaming up for an event to celebrate all that’s made possible thanks to IU donors.

As part of the week of homecoming festivities, Thank a Donor Day will take place Oct. 10. Several schools and non-academic units will be hosting activities, giveaways, and thank-you stations from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The annual Thank a Donor Day started in 2013 as Hoosier Donor Day. The goal is to educate students about the impact of philanthropy at IU, as well as recognize the generous donors who support IU, including the more than 300,000 people who have supported For All: The Indiana University Bicentennial Campaign.

The impact of philanthropy on campus will be made apparent by red bows displayed at locations made possible by donor support, such as the Eskenazi Museum of Art, Sample Gates, labs, classrooms and more. Some scholarship recipients, faculty members with endowed professorships and others whose IU experiences are supported by IU donors will be wearing red bows.
