Support the Indiana Daily Student Legacy Fund

The Indiana Daily Student has been changing the lives of student journalists for 150 years. Here’s how you can keep it going into the future.

Alumni and friends of the Indiana Daily Student have launched the Indiana Daily Student Legacy Fund to raise $150,000 to support editorial operations at Indiana University student publications, including the IDS, Arbutus and Inside magazine. Your tax-deductible donation will help carry forward the decades-long tradition of excellence in student media at IU by providing support for initiatives such as:

  • Training opportunities for student journalists
  • Development of new story forms that will keep content lively as journalism continues to change
  • Travel expenses so student journalists can cover major events, such as national athletic championships and political conventions
  • Need-based scholarships and other financial aid so that students can devote time to journalism

Please donate to the Indiana Daily Student Legacy Fund today. Contact us to learn more about taking a leadership role, such as organizing groups of fellow alumni to bundle your gifts.

We look forward to recognizing all donors who establish an enduring legacy at our celebration Oct. 7, 2017.
