Season of Giving

An IU Indianapolis tradition

Helping families in our community

We are pleased to provide an opportunity for IU Indianapolis students, faculty and staff to share holiday cheer through the Seasons of Giving program. We work with community partners like Hawthorne Community Center and Christamore House to identify families who would like to receive gifts during the holiday season. Campus partners are invited to be paired with these families and purchase the items they have requested. 

With COVID-19, and the economic impacts of the pandemic, families need our help now more than ever before. If you are interested in participating, please complete the form below.
