What is the Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund is the foundation of all giving and growth. Giving through the Annual Fund provides immediate support that impacts virtually every area of the Indiana Tech experience.
This fund is the bridge between what the university earns in tuition and fee income and what is needed to fund the operating budget. You may not have realized that tuition and fees alone do not cover the expenses of daily operation of our campuses and locations. Your gifts help support the basics of operating our university in the following ways:
- Providing financial aid for deserving students
- Helping improve labs and updating technology
- Assisting with attracting and keeping quality faculty
- Enhancing academic and student life
- Advancing our mission of providing career-focused education
- Supporting our areas of greatest need
Why give to the Annual Fund?
Everybody loves a top ten list, so here’s our version of the top ten reasons to support the Indiana Tech Annual Fund:
- It feels so much better to give than to receive.
- It’s an investment with the priceless return of a changed life of a student.
- Your wallet has been weighing you down lately, and this will help lighten the load.
- You understand that alumni giving rates affect the way a university is perceived by outside agencies and grant funding organizations.
- As the Annual Fund grows, so grows the success of Indiana Tech. As the success of Indiana Tech grows, so grows the prestige of your alma mater making your degree even that much more valuable than before.
- You can’t wait to get that wonderfully written thank you letter from the alumni guy.
- You now understand that Indiana Tech depends on the Annual Fund support because other fees and tuition cover only part of Tech’s yearly operating expenses.
- You want to give back to Indiana Tech because Indiana Tech has given so much to you.
- Two words: Tax Deduction (Plus, if you live in Indiana, the state will reimburse you for up to half of the amount you donate.)
- You love Indiana Tech!
