Leadership Gifts

Donors who make leadership gifts are investing in the aspirations and goals of Indiana State University.  These transformational gifts impact all aspects of campus from student scholarship endowments to faculty development opportunities as well as new programs and capital improvement projects. 

All gifts to the University are appreciated, but leadership gifts ensure that Indiana State has the resources needed to provide an engaging, challenging, and supportive learning environment and improve our communities.

Donor Investment in Action:

Simco Lab SiemensSiemens PLM Software provided Indiana State with a gift of the company’s Teamcenter portfolio software. This software in-kind gift of more than $9.7 million allows students in the College of Technology and Scott College of Business to experience the same design and supply chain technology as professionals in the industry.
