Donor Recognition

Donors are the lifeblood of a small campus like Indiana University Columbus. Your generous support will help us go from great to excellent. And, by supporting IU Columbus, you also support Indiana University.

Your gift will be recognized by both our campus and Indiana University through our combined donor thank yous, societies and giving circles—our united approach to making sure you know you are appreciated and saying “Thank you so very much!”

Circle of Leadership

IU Columbus's recognition society is called the Circle of Leadership. With a minimum $1,000 annual gift, you'll be invited to our Circle of Leadership Celebration held in November each year. At this event, you'll enjoy fine dining, fellowship and camaraderie with other IU Columbus supporters, and hear the latest updates on all the great work taking place at IU Columbus.
