Book and Torch Society Recognition

The Book and Torch Society honors Indiana State philanthropists for their lifetime giving to the institution. Donors who give more than $100,000, $500,000 and $1,000,000 respectively to support their Indiana State passions are inducted into this elite society of patrons dedicated to the growth and success of the University.

The Indiana State University Foundation annually recognizes new and progressive Book and Torch Society members at the Knowledge, Inspiration and Truth levels. The Foundation proudly inducted the charter members of the Book and Torch Society at the 2007 Philanthropy Awards Banquet. This induction included all donors who have given at this level since the inception of the University. Since then, the society has grown to more than 1,000 donors.
