United Way Campaign


IUPUI and United Way

As one of the top contributors to the United Way of Central Indiana, IUPUI staff, faculty and students take the commitment to improving our community seriously. But contributions to the campaign are not the only way IUPUI assists United Way agencies in achieving their missions. Our faculty, staff and students also volunteer countless hours to serve on boards, mentor children, deliver meals, organize activities and lend their expertise. The connections between IUPUI and the United Way are varied and deep because we share the goal of improving lives in lasting ways. Over the last 5 years, IUPUI has continued to support United Way and its agencies through various initiatives and programs. These projects involved 30 different United Way of Central Indiana agencies as well as several of United Way’s education programs such as ReadUP and Project SEED.
