Create a Memorial Gift

For memorial gifts to Indiana State, please notify the ISU Foundation. We will ensure that gifts made in honor of your loved one create the legacy that you desire. To assist you with this process we offer the following guidelines and services.

Memorial Gift Language
For obituary announcements we recommend the following language that can be personalized to your needs.

Memorial contributions may be made through the Indiana State University Foundation. Please direct your contributions to (fund of your choice) in memory of (the name of your friend or loved one).  Contact the ISU Foundation or send a gift to the ISU Foundation, 30 North 5th Street, Terre Haute, IN 47809.

In Memoriam Gift Envelopes
Oftentimes family members would like to provide an opportunity for others to make their gift through a funeral home or during a visitation or funeral service. We can provide the funeral home or service provider with special Indiana State In Memoriam envelopes for this purpose.

Family Member Information
For all memorial gifts, the ISU Foundation generates a letter notifying the next of kin or a designated representative that a gift has been made in honor of their loved one. These letters provide the name and address for donors to allow you to recognize those who make memorial contributions.

A report is made available to you upon request. This report includes the names and addresses of people who have made gifts in memory of your loved one and includes the designation noted by the donor. The report indicates the total amount of memorial gifts made but does not include the contribution amount from individual donors.
