2021 Campus Campaign

What is the purpose of the Campus Campaign?

Not only do gifts from faculty and staff provide vital financial support for our campus, but they also demonstrate to students, alumni, and community members that we believe IU Kokomo is worthy of our support. If we don’t support our own school financially, why should anyone else? A gift of just $5 or $10 tells prospective students and their families (as well as alumni, and both current and prospective donors) that IU Kokomo staff and faculty are willing to back up supportive words with real dollars.

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

  • Print & Mail response card
  • Online payroll deduction (Please note there is a minimum $10 per pay period for a minimum of four periods.)
  • Donate through the "Give Now" button with a credit or debit card.

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 to assist in your planning. If you are interested in a gift that spans longer than one year, please call the Office for Advancement (ext. 9205) for assistance, as gifts may be extended as long as five years.

Tax Benefits

The stimulus bill passed and signed at the end of December extends and modifies the charitable deduction available to non-itemizers for gifts they make to public charities. For 2021 only, the law doubles to $600 the maximum amount joint filers may deduct. As in 2020, single filers or married filers who file separately are limited to $300. This deduction can be claimed in addition to the standard deduction.

Who do I contact if I have questions?

Please contact Kevin Soderman in the Office for University Advancement.
