Ivy Tech Foundation invites community to join first Day of Giving

Alumni, friends of Ivy Tech Community College, and all Hoosiers can help the College develop a new generation of leaders by contributing to Ivy Tech Day, the College’s first-ever Day of Giving on Apr. 11.

Starting at midnight on Apr. 11 – for 24 hours – people everywhere can support the College’s 19 campuses, including Ivy Tech Fort Wayne and Warsaw, and the 150,000 students in Indiana who are building brighter futures for themselves and for those around them. The goal is to reach 600 gifts in celebration of the College’s 60th anniversary.

“Our campus has a mission to help our students create a better tomorrow for themselves and their communities,” says Beth Clemens, Ivy Tech Fort Wayne & Warsaw Director of TRIO Student Support Services. “The first-ever Day of Giving is a new opportunity for us to come together with the community and develop more resources to guide our students on a path towards success.”

Ivy Tech Day is part of the Foundation’s 5-year, $285 million campaign. Leading up to the Day of Giving, the Foundation will share stories of impact across the College with the community that capture how Ivy Tech is changing the lives of Hoosiers across the state. Participants can give to the College through the Ivy Tech Foundation by visiting ivytech.edu/giveday.

Ivy Tech, founded on March 15, 1963, is the largest singly accredited community college in the U.S. and has been an indispensable lifeline to Indiana communities for 60 years:

  • 8 of 10 people who graduate from Ivy Tech do so without student debt
  • 93% of graduates stay in Indiana to work in industries that help drive the state’s economy
  • $3.9 billion is contributed annually from the College to Indiana’s economy – including a net impact of $3.6 billion from alumni alone
