What areas of ISU can I support?

You can make a joyful gift to any area of campus and we encourage you to find something that has a special meaning to you. Whether you are passionate about supporting a priority in one of our academic colleges, an athletic team, student organization, funding experiential learning opportunities or any number of other options, you can direct your gift to exactly what you want to support. If you don't see the area you want to support, you can do a keyword search for a specific fund or priority on the main Give to Blue Day page.

What are Matching and Challenge Gifts?

Matches and Challenges are gift commitments from other Sycamores to help encourage greater participation and to increase the overall excitement on Give to Blue Day. Donors can "challenge" others to join them in supporting a certain area, program or priority, by making a commitment to give a certain amount when their challenge goal is met. Challenges may be tied to the number of donors, number of donations, or the total dollars contributed. Matches work specifically to "match" every dollar that is given to an area, thus doubling the impact of each contribution. In order to help unlock one of these challenges or matches, find an area that is important to you and see what is available. You can even create some of your own!

If I don't want to give online, is it possible to make my gift by mail or by phone?

Since Give to Blue Day is a 24-hour fundraising effort, we encourage you to make your gift online and join in the excitement of the day. You can also call 812.237.6100 to connect with a member of the University Advancement team to make a gift or discuss other options that may be available.
