The IU Foundation honors the outstanding volunteers and friends of the university who help support them in fundraising. Meeting, and often exceeding, the lofty goals of each campaign would not be possible without the enthusiastic commitment of these honorees. There are four awards that make up the Partners in Philanthropy Awards.
• The Cornerstone Award recognizes individuals whose partnership, volunteer involvement, and generosity have been instrumental in the success of a fundraising campaign or initiative at the university, campus, school, or program level.
• The Keystone Award recognizes those who have shown generosity and leadership as volunteers in multiple campaigns.
• The Family Legacy Award honors families who have made a tradition of volunteering and giving to IU.
• The Herman B Wells Visionary Award honors individuals who have shown an understanding of power of philanthropy through their lifetime commitment of time, skill, and donations.
