IUF Crowdfunding


For more than 50 years, IU Travels has been offering educational trips on all five 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. 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.

Our goal is to include as many faculty hosts as possible on our trips, though there are costs associated with paying the expenses of faculty who volunteer to join our tours.

With a generous lead donation from Vi Simpson and Bill McCarty, an endowment has been started to fund more faculty hosts for future trips. On this IU Day, we hope you will help us continue to support the inclusion of faculty hosts with a donation to the IU Travels Endowment*.

*Gifts to endowment accounts not reaching the required minimum endowment threshold through fulfilled pledges and gifts after five years shall become available to be expended for the account purpose.
