How to Give
If you would like to make a donation to the campaign, please contact Danielle Conlon at (812) 855-4343 or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In September, every Indiana University employee should receive an individualized pledge card from the Unit Leader in their department. Please fill out this pledge card and return it to either your Unit Leader or Kelly Cornett in Bryan Hall 300.
The Vanguard Leadership Giving Program
What is the Vanguard?
The Vanguard is the Leadership Giving Program within the United Way campaign. Vanguards make an important personal investment in our community by pledging at the Silver Level ($1,000-$2,499), Gold Level ($2,500- $4,999), Platinum Level ($5,000-$9,999), or Benjamin Harrison Level ($10,000 and up).
Members of the same household may combine their gifts to participate in the Vanguard program. Also, gifts that are matched by an employer will be recognized in the Vanguard program if the total gift is $1,000 or more.
How are Vanguard gifts made to United Way?
Vanguard donors use the standard United Way campaign pledge form and may use any of the methods United Way offers to make their gift. Contributions can be made through payroll deduction, direct billing, ACH withdrawls, cash or checks, or through the donation of stocks.
Can a Vanguard contribution be designated?
Although all donors are encouraged to give to the Community Action Fund in order to support the widest array of services in the community, any individual contribution can be designated to a United Way member agency or donor choice agency. Please see PDF for more information. Member agencies are in capital letters.
How are Vanguards recognized?
Unless a Vanguard donor chooses to remain anonymous, they will be listed in the Annual Vanguard Roster and the United Way Annual Report. The donor's professional affiliation is also listed (optional). From time to time, United Way volunteers host special events to acknowledge the important role Vanguards play in the general United Way campaign and our community.
What should I do if I have other questions?
We encourage anyone with questions to contact the IU Campaign Coordinator at 812-855-4343 or via e-mail to email@example.com.
