IUF Crowdfunding


We are so excited to have our 2022 travel schedule planned with 55 trips to all 7 continents and look forward to sharing these experiences with you! As you know, IU Travels offers educational trips on all 7 continents to intellectually curious IU alumni and friends. Our travel study trips include land tours and river and ocean cruises to virtually all the places in the world on your Bucket List.

More Info

Our tours are enriched by the camaraderie of traveling with a small group and by professional tour directors, local guides and lecturers, and often with IU faculty who share their expertise and interest in the history, culture, and art of the places we visit.

With a generous lead donation from Vi Simpson and Bill McCarty, an endowment has been started to support the future of the IU Travels program. Data shows that our trips are more enriching with the attendance of our world-renowned faculty and is one of many examples in which these gifts may be utilized.

We invite you to join Vi and Bill by supporting the IU Travels Fund. When you make a gift, you support the enriching experiences of our IU Travelers, our faculty who provide the educational experience that enhance traveling experiences and meaningful connections to Indiana University and the world.

Please consider making a gift today.

The Indiana University Foundation solicits tax-deductible private contributions for the benefit of Indiana University and is registered to solicit charitable contributions in all states requiring registration. For our full disclosure statement, see go.iu.edu/89n.

Per Indiana University Foundation policy, new endowment accounts which do not become fully funded at the required stated minimum through pledges/gifts at the time of the establishment of the account and through fulfilled pledges/gifts after five years will be converted, and all gifts will be made available to support the intent outlined in the supporting agreement.
