Campus Give

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Campus Campaign? 

The purpose of the 2014 Campus Campaign is to seek philanthropic support for Indiana University East from all faculty and staff members. Your gift enables us to provide outstanding opportunities for scholarships, innovative programs, and exciting cultural and athletic events for our campus community and region we serve.

Why is the Campus Campaign so important? 

Gifts from faculty and staff provide funding for important initiatives and scholarships on the IU East campus, and are an endorsement of the university, announcing to alumni, friends, businesses, and community that IU East is worthy of support and that support starts with "us."

How will my gift be used?

It’s your choice! You can designate your gift to the university, department, program, scholarship, or other initiative that you like. You can also designate as many funds as you would like. You can find a complete list of accounts on our campus campaign website at

What are my payment options?

Payroll deduction, online, check, or credit card. One-time payroll deductions cannot be processed. Please make one-time gifts by cash, check or credit card.

Tax Benefits

Your gift may provide you with specific tax savings. Indiana taxpayers receive a tax credit of 50% on gifts up to $200 if filing a single return and $400 on a joint return. For example, Sharon has an annual income of $40,000 and files an individual tax return and itemizes. Sharon gave $200 to IU East in April 2010, and it only cost her $50. Here’s how it works:

Gift $200
Federal tax savings $50
Indiana tax credit $100
Net cost to Sharon $50

Chancellor’s Challenge

Your gift will go even farther again in 2014. Chancellor Kathryn Cruz-Uribe and her husband Gene will contribute $5.00 for every gift made to the 2014 Campus Campaign
