2022 Campus Campaign

What is the purpose of the Campus Campaign?

Not only do gifts from faculty and staff provide critical financial support for our student and our campus, but they also demonstrate to students, alumni, and community members that we believe IU Kokomo is worthy of our support. Your gift tells prospective students and their families (as well as alumni, and both current and prospective donors) that IU Kokomo staff and faculty believe in the importance and value of IU Kokomo’s mission enough to support it with their own dollars.

Gerry Gunnings Stroman Scholarship Endowment*

You can be a part of making the Gerry Gunnings Stroman Scholarship endowment a reality.

Indiana University Kokomo faculty and staff are able to give in the following ways:

How do I decide what to give?

Your gift is a personal decision, and a personally significant gift is very valuable to Indiana University Kokomo. Your gift to this campaign can be spread out over one year, and we are happy to guide you in setting this up.  If you are interested in a gift that spans longer than one year, you can set up your payroll deduction to last for an indefinite number of pay periods so that your giving will continue without having to set it up each year.

Tax Benefits

Indiana taxpayers may take a tax credit of 50% of their gift to Indiana University Kokomo. For a joint return, the maximum credit is $200, based on a gift of $400 or more. For a single return, the maximum credit is $100 (based on a gift of $200 or more).

Who counts as participating in the 2022 Campus Campaign?

All faculty and staff who make a gift of any amount to any IU Kokomo fund at the IU Foundation between March 1, 2021, and February 28, 2022, are counted as participating (so gifts given on IU Day and Giving Tuesday 2021 count toward this campaign!). The month of February 2022 serves as the final year-end push for the campaign. If you’re not sure whether or not you’ve given during this time period or have other questions about your current giving to IU Kokomo, please don’t hesitate to call or email Kevin Soderman at 765-455-9205 or ksoderma@indiana.edu.
