Only a very small portion of the Kelley School’s annual budget comes from state allocations—the lion’s share is from other sources, including private gifts. Kelley at IUPUI relies on the generosity of our supporters to best serve students and our community. You can support the Kelley family by making a gift today.

Where can you make the greatest impact?

Your gift to the Futures Fund provides unrestricted support to the needs at Kelley IUPUI, including the entrepreneurship of our team, with seed money for ideas and programs that have not yet earned a budget line. Our newest projects immerse students in the Indianapolis business community, translate faculty research into better business decisions and align talent to the economic uplift of our community.
