The most generous philanthropists make up the Presidents Circle, recognizing the significant impact of their gifts to IU. It is through their charitable giving that the university has become a prominent institution of higher education.
The Presidents Circle Laurel Pin honors these philanthropists at three levels: Benefactor ($1,000,000), Fellow ($5,000,000), and Founder ($10,000,000). The pin was custom designed by Tiffany and Co. and features one, two, or three garnets coinciding with the level the honoree has reached.
It is presented by the IU Foundation at an exclusive presidential conferral event.
