IU South Bend Alumni Association Battle of the Decades Competition
The IU South Bend Alumni Association has launched an exciting new competition and fundraiser, the Battle of the Decades, in support of future Titan scholars. The Battle of the Decades launched on Wednesday, November 14 and will run through Giving Tuesday on November 27.
Each graduating class has been grouped by decade from our first class in 1967 to our most recent class in 2018. The decade that has the highest percentage of participation and the decade that raises the most money for the IU South Bend Jubilee Alumni Scholarship will be named as the winners. We are asking all alumni and friends to commemorate 2018 with an $18 donation to the scholarship. Donors interested in giving more are encouraged to give an additional $1 for every year since graduation.
Each decade’s funds will be matched up to $2,500 by five generous underwriters from our community. We are thankful for the generosity of 1st Source Bank, Crowe, Gurley Leep Automotive Family, IU South Bend, and Saint Joseph Health System for their support of the Battle of the Decades.
These underwriter gifts provide an excellent opportunity for our alumni to work together to make a big impact! It only takes 139 gifts of $18 to reach the matching funds goal!
By teaming up with fellow alumni, each decade can help ease the financial burden of our Titan scholars so they can focus more directly on achieving their academic goals, and stay engaged in campus life.
Help your decade win with a gift today! In addition to bragging rights the winning decades will be recognized with a brick on the Student Activities Center Plaza in a reception and brick laying ceremony next spring.
