The Indiana Initiative

For more information about the Kovalchick Complex and the Indiana Initiative, please visit www.iup.edu/kcac.

The Indiana Initiative is a capital campaign to raise $20 million in funding as a match to $20 million in state funds and to build the $41-million Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex. The initiative will challenge IUP to create new relationships, build capacity, and raise visibility in a way that will continue to serve the university well beyond the four-year duration of the campaign. Fundraising efforts will culminate in a celebration of the opening of the complex in 2011.  

The success of the campaign is dependent on generous gifts from alumni and university friends, from foundations and corporations, from groups and organizations, and from governmental sources. The hard work and dedication of many individuals who care deeply about the university and about Indiana will also be important to achieving the goal. To this end, the campaign will engage a national network of volunteers in twelve geographically targeted regions that have significant IUP alumni bases—donors already committed to support for the KCAC and/or prospective centers of corporate or foundation support.
