About Ivy Tech Foundation
Ivy Tech Foundation, Inc. was organized in 1969, six years after the Indiana General Assembly created Ivy Tech Community College . Initially, the Foundation's primary function was to purchase real estate and lease or sell it to the College. Even today, the Foundation helps the College with many real estate acquisitions.
The Foundation's most important function is to provide support for Ivy Tech beyond state appropriations and student fees. Its overall program of work focuses on meeting student needs. The Foundation's work is made possible by donations of money and property by friends of the College. The Foundation distributes these donations for College activities, programs, and needs.
We partner with donors to invest in Ivy Tech Community College students, faculty, and programs to build stronger communities and a better Indiana.
We aspire to be the best two-year college foundation in America , and to be recognized as such by donors as stewards of their philanthropy; by students, faculty, and staff as a significant source of support for excellence and opportunity; and by peers as a model of efficiency, effectiveness, and vision.
