Student United Way at Indiana University Bloomington

Student United Way is a student-led community change organization. Student leaders improve peoples’ lives, develop leadership skills and join the growing United Way movement by giving, advocating, and volunteering on campus and in the community. Upon graduation, student leaders of United Way campus chapters join an alumni network that helps them stay involved in community change for the long term.


The Student United Way at Indiana University serves the local community by
1) Giving, Advocating, and Volunteering in the areas of Education, Earnings, and Essentials,
2) helping members and other students grow as leaders and connect to the community, and
3) building lasting relationships amongst members and with the United Way movement. 

The Student United Way work includes

  • Advocate: Educate members and the student body about critical community issues in education, income, and health
  • Volunteer: Serve, and recruit peers to serve, in meaningful ways that help create lasting change
  • Give: Fundraise and donate to help address critical issues facing the community



To address the lack of communication between service organizations on IU’s campus, we partner with existing service clubs on campus to share resources, volunteer opportunities, and brain power. Interested in becoming a partner organization? Contact IUStudentUnitedWay (at)

Indiana University Campaign

Indiana University Campaign for United Way
Thanks to the generous support of Indiana University faculty, staff, and students, a hungry senior received a warm meal, a child received a much needed mentor, and a family is getting assistance to make it through a crisis.

These and many other moments are only possible due to caring individuals throughout the community who participate in the annual United Way campaign each fall collectively donating over $1.3 million dollars to support the efforts of United Way and its 25 partner agencies.

For over 60 years, the United Way of Monroe County has been working to address the most pressing human service issues of local residents and is thankful for the incredible generosity of Indiana University student, faculty, and staff.

Student United Way is an active part of the campaign in many ways including:

  • Update Progress boards
  • Pledge Card Delivery (on campus)
  • Thank-a-thon
