William W. McCutchen Jr.


IUPUI Spirit of Philanthropy Award (2016)
Presidents Circle Laurel Pin (2016)


Irene and Bill McCutchen make philanthropy a part of their daily lives through their volunteer work and by giving generously. Both are active in higher education as volunteers: Irene serves on the board of visitors for the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, and Bill is currently co-chairing a campaign for the Duke Divinity School.

In 2014, Irene and Bill generously supported the endowment of the Eugene R. Tempel Deanship at the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy. This tremendous gift will help the school attract future deans of the highest caliber and will allow them to quickly and innovatively meet challenges, seize opportunities and fulfill the mission of the school to improve philanthropy to improve the world.
