The IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy is the first school in the world dedicated to the study and practice of philanthropy. We set the standard for this critical academic focus, and we’ve been evolving, shaping, and guiding it ever since.
Our graduates go on to greatly influence education, health, the environment, religion, social services, arts, culture, and much more. As we continue to foster the volunteer spirit and acts of giving, we ensure that those in need do not remain in need. We empower communities to care for their own. And we make a lasting difference within our region and all over the world.
With the launch of For All: The Indiana University Bicentennial Campaign, the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy seeks to generate critical private support, which is so necessary for growing our capacities to share the practical knowledge that moves philanthropy forward. And with your generosity, we can accomplish this goal.
Together, we can create a stronger, more charitable society and a better world for all.
FOR ALL WHOSE GIFTS CHANGE THE WORLD
For all the lives we will transform
Our greatest responsibility is also our greatest opportunity—to empower the minds of tomorrow. When students learn, lead, and grow at IU, their lives change for the better. And often, they then go on to change the lives of others too. In that way, we’re not just empowering students, we’re building a better future—for all.Explore all the ways the bicentennial campaign will build a brighter future for all
