All IU Crowdfunding campaigns are endorsed by the IU Foundation, on behalf of Indiana University. Additionally, all gifts are administered by the IU Foundation. For more information, read our fundraising disclosure here.
A campaign that doesn’t reach its goal will still receive all donated funds. The campaign owner can choose to continue or end the campaign, but donors’ gifts will nevertheless be directed to the campaign’s cause as intended.
Once a campaign reaches its goal the campaign owner can choose to:
- Continue taking donations in excess of the original campaign goal
- Raise the campaign goal and continue taking donations
- Close the campaign (Closed campaigns will still accept gifts, but these gifts won’t be reflected on the crowdfunding tracker.)
IU Crowdfunding campaigns are initiated through the IU fundraising system. If you work at IU in a fundraising capacity, contact us at IUFcrowd@iu.edu to get your campaign under way.
To contact a campaign owner, email IUFcrowd@iu.edu with the name of the campaign and your question.

We moved IU Crowdfunding to a new platform (and discontinued the old one) to provide IU donors and campaigns with more reliable service. So, if you’re here to make an IU Crowdfunding gift, you can rest assured that you’ve come to the right place. For more information, read our fundraising disclosure here.
