Office of Development

Each year, the IPFW Annual Fund contacts donors and potential donors in order to raise annual operating funds to support ongoing work and programs. In general, annual giving programs provide a steady supply of unrestricted money that can be used for scholarships, student aid, special services, projects, and supplies in many areas of need.

Who is solicited for an annual gift?

Anyone who is an alumnus or alumna of IPFW and anyone who has made a gift to a fundraising program are solicited annually by the Office of Development's Annual Fund.

What if someone does not want wish to be solicited by the University?

If someone does not wish to be solicited, the person should call the Office of Development at 260-481-6962 and speak with Paula Rice - Administrative Assistant and request that the University code the person's record for 'no solicitation'. Records can be coded to eliminate solicitations from a specific unit or the entire university.
