Memorial Gifts

Many alumni and friends of the University make gifts in memory of someone dear to both IWU and themselves.  IWU welcomes these gifts and appreciates the importance of this philanthropy to all parties involved: the donor, the deceased, and the institution.  One can make a memorial gift by including this designation at the time the gift is given.  If making a gift on-line, please indicate the memorial information in the space provided.

Naming Opportunities

One way to establish a lasting legacy through a charitable gift is by naming an event or physical structure on campus.  To learn more about the current opportunities for naming at IWU, please contact the Advancement Office.


From curriculum development grants and faculty development grants to student research fellowships and endowed library funds, there are various ways a donor may impact life at IWU.  To learn more about these and other giving opportunities, please contact the Advancement Office.  We would be happy to discuss with you the opportunities available and work with you to find one that fits your personal preference in supporting the University.
